The most recent Lindberg revision to the Sox Encyclopedia does have all of the city series results through 1995 (there was no game in '96, and of course interleague started in '97 with results easily found on retrosheet).

I'm not going to retype them all.

Between 1949-1972, they played a "Boys Benefit Game". From 1985-1995 was the Crosstown Classic Series.

I forgot about this, but there were two games in '95 as the strike was winding down:

1995 Gm 1: Sox 6 - Cubs 3
1995 Gm 2: Sox 6 - Cubs 2
1994: Sox 4 - Cubs 4 (Jordan game)
1993: Sox 4 - Cubs 3
1992: Sox 5 - Cubs 0
1991: Sox 7 - Cubs 2
1990: Sox 6 - Cubs 5
1989: Sox 5 - Cubs 4
1988: Sox 6 - Cubs 6 (15 innings, Lyons played all 9 innings, called due to darkness? as lights didnt happen until 8/8/88)
1987: Sox 10 - Cubs 6 (this was the fog game)
1986: Sox 3 - Cubs 0
1985: Sox 7 - Cubs 4 (first game of series at Old Comiskey)

1981: Mayor's Series during the strike:
Gm 1: Aug 7 @ Comiskey, Cubs and Sox tie
Gm 2: Aug 8 @ Wrigley, Cubs won

Then before that, the last game was 1972: Cubs 3 - Sox 1

The remaining results are in the Lindberg book with game write-ups too.
