    2008 President Barack Obama Signed Chicago Cubs Jersey. The terrible Springfield Race Riots in the capital city of Illinois left seven dead and over sixty buildings burned to the ground, rattling the state just three months before the Chicago Cubs emerged victorious from the 1908 Fall Classic. So if you had told fans that the country would see a black President before another World Championship, they'd be forgiven for calling you crazy. This utterly unique jersey announcing "Obama 08" on verso exhibits just how far we've come as a nation in a century's time, while marking a sad centennial for Cubs faithful. Though the President is a vocal White Sox supporter, he nonetheless shows his love for all things Chicago with a 9+/10 black sharpie signature. Obama signed baseballs have become a cottage industry, but this is the first autographed jersey we've encountered. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
