I sent an email to Brooks Boyer about celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 1906 Cubs/Sox World Series.

Here's what I got back...

Thanks for the note.

We are planning on wearing the 1906 uniforms on occasion next season to
commemorate the 1906 WS victory. It should be pretty cool.

All the best,

Brooks

That will be a nice little thing to go along with Sox and Cubs meeting up for the first time on May 19th - 21st next year.

They could wait to re-raise the 1906 championship flag until the Cubs are at the Cell too. :cool:

Fast Facts
On September 17, 1906, future hall of famer Eddie Collins (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=collied01) made his Major League debut and had one hit off Ed Walsh (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=walshed01). However, did you know that he played this game under the last name Sullivan to preserve his college eligibility at Columbia University?

The Chicago Cubs (http://baseball-almanac.com/teams/cubs.shtml) were heavily favored coming into the 1906 World Series and led the league in hitting, pitching and fielding.

The White Sox (http://baseball-almanac.com/teams/wsox.shtml) were given the nickname the "hitless wonders" coming into the series yet they had twice the amount of earned runs versus the Cubs during the series.

This Cubs (http://baseball-almanac.com/teams/cubs.shtml) team is considered one of the greatest teams in Major League history. They finished the season with a record one-hundred sixteen (116) wins and a team earned run average of 1.76.

Does this mean they'll start selling the 1906 jersey (a la the 83 and 60 jerseys)?

BRING BACK THE ED WALSH LOOK!!!

Is there any way to get a jersey from the Gamble, Fisk, Zisk era. I guess the ones that were modeled after the 1906 ones. I want a 1977 road jersey, bad.

Grandstand has some on display among the other retro jerseys. Also check eBay, sometimes they surface there. Good luck, young Jedi!

A close second is the early 70's away. I know that's out there with Richie Allen's #15. I'll be looking for it.

Now that would get as big a roar, IMO, as the 2005 WS flag and the 2005 AL Central/Champs flag.

I wonder if both teams would wear the old uniforms. I hate turn back the clock days when only the home team is involved. What did the Cubs unis look like back then?

I think they did for the first Sox/Cubs game at Comiskey in 1997 when interleague play started.

I think you're right. If the rust in my brain remembers, those sCrUB uni's were VERY plain. Maybe a number, but not much else. Kinda like their talent. :moonwalk:

Yes. Both teams wore throwbacks for that game. I remember it was a miserable rainy day, and it was the only ever Sox-Cubs game that wasn't sold out (or so says my friend, who allegedly bought day of game tickets). The Sox wore the all navy jerseys, and the Cubs wore grey, I believe. I have been looking for the damn tape of that game for a few months now, but sadly, I can't find it. It is somewhere in this house.

Your friend is correct. I was at the game in the upper deck and there were plenty of empty seats. It seemed like people didn't realize that these games actually counted now. I feel like the Cubs wore navy and the Sox wore white or grey, but it's been eight years so perhaps there's a chance that I'm wrong.

I think you might have found another $300 jersey to ask for at grandstand! No teal required.:cool:

And the sad part is we both know he'd spend that kind of money on another jersey! We've seen him do it... twice! :cool:

it would be cool to see the Cubs and White Sox in these uniforms

After more digging around on the Baseball Hall of Fame site, I found that the first team to use a uniform patch (http://www.baseballhalloffame.org/exhibits/online_exhibits/dressed_to_the_nines/patches.htm) was the Sox! The 1907 road uniform had a World Champions patch commemorating the victory over the Cubs. Unfortunately, I've been unable to find a graphic of this patch. Maybe someone in the Sox organization has access to this. I think it would be a good seller next year.

I have great news! No, I didn't swtich to Geico, I found the tape! I am watching it right now. I didn't remember, but it fell on the same day as the Bulls' 5th rally in Grant Park.
You were right about the uniforms. The Sox wore the 1917 World Series unis. The uniforms were flawless reproductions. The hats were without logos (unlike the 2001 version), and every single player had their pants hiked up, showing those beautiful red white and blue striped socks. That is the way to do it. Don't make "throwbacks" with ankle length pants. It isn't a true throwback unless the unis are worn the same way. If Allen Iverson wears a 1983 Sixers throwback with shorts that come half way down his shins, they aren't throwbacks. I want to see him in the daisy dukes.:redneck

As for Chicago NL, they wore 1911 throwbacks for some reason. Their unis were also perfect reproductions. They wore solid navy blue - jersey, pants, hat, and football style socks. All of the Cubs players had their pants hiked up, also. The hats had a white c, and their jerseys had that lame-ass "bear holding a bat" logo inside a c.

Comments about the park - wow. It doesn't even look like the same park we play in now. The amount of blue is insane. The seats are bright blue, the walls are bright blue, the bullpens, EVEN THE DUGOUTS! Also, the dugouts didn't have the protective railings in front of them yet. You have to see the park in it's original state to fully appreciate the beauty of USCF. I still kinda miss the moat, though.

Comments on the team - We sucked. Jaime Navarro started, so of course we lost. Watching this, I now realize how HORRIBLE Ray Durham was defensively. As someone posted here, he had the range of a fire hydrant at second base. There were three hits in the first couple of innings that I honestly believe Frank could have gotten to if he was playing 2B. As for Frank, he was on the DL, so Mario Valdez started at 1B. Yes, Mario Valdez. Baines was DHing, Belle in left, Lyle Mouton in right, Chris Snopek at 3B (Robin still recovering from horrific ankle injury), Ozzie at SS, and the great Jorge Fabregas behind the plate. It was strange to see Ryne Sandburg and Martinez on the same field together. I'm sure they had words before the game.:D:

Yeah, we had some **** teams in the late 90s. ****ing Mario Valdez, Jamie Narrvoro, Lyle Muton.
