Chicago Cubs Book - Gift Details
Relive the Cubs’ most memorable moments with this Washington Post newspaper book, featuring reprints of reports written at the time.
Coverage begins in September 1907 with the Cubs’ 100th victory that secured the team its eighth National League pennant. Further titles in 1908 and 1910 follow, both of which are covered in depth in the book.
Thereafter, the team’s greatest victories are all included, thus creating a fantastic reportage history for any diehard Cubs fan. Included in the coverage is 1918’s World Series in which the team lost by four games to two to the Boston Red Sox. Another National League pennant in 1929 is also in there, along with league titles in 1932, 1935 and 1938.
Defeat in the World Series of 1945 is included, along with the heartbreak of 1984, when the rejuvenated Cubs narrowly missed out on a place in the World Series following defeat to the San Diego Padres. More recent coverage includes league titles in 1989, 2003, 2007 and 2008 – the latter of which includes the team’s 10,000th win.
As for the book itself, it measures in at an impressive 12.5 x 15”, with the choice of two striking editions – both gold-embossed for free. The first is our original burnt sienna cover, made with an antique-style coat; beautifully contrasting the book’s originally reported black and white content.

Not only does this leather book include the black and white re-mastered content, this edition features full-color pages from 2006 onwards, merging your team’s definitive history into a precious contemporary keepsake.
