JJ Stankevitz credits Larry Granillo and Pitchers and Poets for this find of the day: Cartoonist Gene Macks' rendering of Comiskey Park for the Sporting News in 1946 or 1947.

Have seen this many times.
There is an updated version which came out in the late 70s with updates such as Nellie Fox at second base and the exploding scoreboard.
It and all the other parks can be found in this book which I owned at one time.

Finally found it.
Can't figure out how to make it larger so we can read it.

I noticed that is said "Chisox Bullpen", had no idea that the term "Chisox" was used all the way back then.

I always thought it that came along much later.

Yep, I have a version of this also - printed in the early-to-mid 80s called The Sporting News' "Take Me Out to the Ballpark."

The older one was in The Sporting News' 1947 Baseball Guide, which I owned at one time. Instead of schematic diagrams of the ballparks accompanying each team's section, they ran these cartoons. There were only 14 ballparks in the majors at the time because St. Louis and Philadelphia (I believe) shared their parks for their city's two teams.

As a gift some years ago, a friend gave me the updated poster, which I have rolled in a tube in a closet. I've never gotten around to framing it. I don't have enough room on my walls for my baseball stuff and my photography.

Very cool - does look strange w/o the scoreboard.
