On Monday night, each fan entering Wrigley Field will receive a "Homerun-Cubs Commemorative Replica Trophy Case."
The company also is hoping to market it's brand a Wrigley Field with a new slogan: "Next year I'll quit. Next year we'll win."
By turning an empty Homerun cellophane pack upside down, company officials noted it resembles the trophy case of the Cubs, Both are empty.
"We think Homerun and the Cubs go together perfectly. Just as there are no Cubs fans who have ever seen a World Series trophy, there are no old Homerun smokers, either," said Miles Smedley, the cigarette company's director of marketing.
