Description

    1908 "A Yard of the National Game" Chicago Cubs Panorama. Who could have imagined, when this majestic production piece was issued to commemorate back to back World Championships in 1908, that Cubs fans would still be waiting for the next one almost a century later? Return to those carefree days when baseball glory seemed to grow on Chicago trees with this remarkable rarity, documenting the men and the grounds that last saw world domination.

    The center of the 14x46" display (framed to 18x50") is occupied by a terrific panoramic photo picturing the entirety of West Side Park, abandoned for Wrigley in 1916. Individual portraits of such legends as Tinker, Evers, Chance and Mordecai "Three Fingers" Brown line the upper edge, with panoramic photos of the team in uniform and in civilian garb balance the piece below. Close inspection reveals a scattered crease or small stain, but our catalog and online imagery should convey that the overall aesthetics remain very strong.
