Just think of it guys. Every single person who ever won a World Series as a Cub is DEAD.

Enjoy the pics below (link to larger ones) and stare into the void of 100 years of pain.

Does anyone know where I could score a plaque of the 05 champs? I have a joke regarding the contrast of the 08 team plaque and the 05 team plaque I want to play on a friend

I meant team plaque of 2005 Sox and of course, the 1908 cubs plaque is in thread.

I remember seeing Cap Anson club three home runs out of League Park. Back then, the Cubs were known as the Dodo Birds.

That's not even Wrigley. It's West Side Park. It was another six years before the Cubs moved north.

It's still hard to believe that they've been playing there for that long and have never won the whole thing during that period.

Especially considering that for most of those 100 years the NL consisted of about 7 or 8 teams. The odds used to be much higher.

I'm surprised no one has posted this yet (or maybe someone has, I didn't really search).

8 pennants (IIRC) from 1910 to 1945, but no Series crown.

I just LOVE Sox fans that are obsessed with everything Cubs.

That first one I looked at -- against Pittsburg -- was dated 1907. Wow, the [four-letter word] haven't won the Series since Pittsburgh added the H to the name.
