Cubs Collection: 100 Years of Chicago Cubs Imagesby Mark Stang
Culled from 16 public and private photo archives, this collection includes dozens of
Over 225 black and white photographs span 100 years of baseball history in this stunning collection of Cubs images. From the days of Tinker, Evers and Chance to Ryne Sandberg and Sammy Sosa, the famous and the forgotten fill these pages and recall the glory of Chicago Cubs baseball.
Culled from 16 public and private photo archives, this collection includes dozens of previously unpublished images. Many of the old photographs were locked away in dusty files for decades until appearing here for the first time. Printer's marks were removed and the detail in the images was revealed through careful restoration. Most of the photographs have been reproduced to near their original size to faithfully record what the photographer saw.
These photographs record the changing face of baseball through the century by documenting the evolution of equipment, ballparks, uniforms and batting styles. Players, managers, owners and broadcasters--they're all here, with captions that bring their stories to life. From the glory of the 1906-08 champions to the agony of 1969. From "Three Finger" Brown to Ernie Banks and beyond.
