Best Way to Rep the Reds in 2-D: Reds Fans Cutouts

Just because you couldn’t physically attend a Reds game this season didn’t mean you couldn’t be there in spirit — and in cutout form. The Cincinnati Reds kicked off gameplay in late July and sold limited-time Reds Fans Cutouts to help keep the seats at Great American Ball Park warm (metaphorically, of course — it was summer so the seats were already hot). For $75, you could submit a photograph of yourself (following very specific guidelines) and the team would print and place a 2-D version of your 3-D form in the stands to silently cheer the Reds to victory. All proceeds benefited the Reds Community Fund, “dedicated to improving the lives of youth by leveraging the tradition of the Cincinnati Reds and the game of baseball.” Fans were able to pick-up their cutouts at the end of the season.
