Relive all the greatest moments of the Boys in Blue with this personalized Cubs gift: the Chicago Cubs newspaper book. Made from newspaper headlines of the time, and with coverage beginning in 1907, the year of the franchise’s first World Series title, this Chicago Cubs history book guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Wrigley Field and beyond, right up until the present day.
At the start of the 20th century, if you’d have told anyone that the Chicago Cubs would go on to record the longest championship drought in the history of North American professional sports, they simply wouldn’t have believed you. In 1906, the Cubs registered a 116-36 record, to this day an all-time record winning percentage (.763). Though they would fall at the final hurdle that year to the White Sox, the Cubs would go on to win the World Series in both 1907 and 1908, becoming the first ever team to capture multiple titles. What followed was an astonishing 108 years of disappointment. The Cubs lost seven World Series without winning between 1910 and 1945, and wouldn’t reach another for 71 years, earning them the nickname “the Lovable Losers”. But against all the odds and history, despite being 3-1 down to the Cleveland Indians, the Cubs fought back to win the 2016 World Series 4-3, becoming the first team to overturn such a deficit in over 30 years, and prompting a celebratory parade in Chicago that was attended by an estimated five million people.
