Classic Cubs Images Throughout Time

Cheer on the Cubs — present and past — with classic photos


Can it be true? Is it actually possible the Chicago Cubs might finally make it to the World Series after more than 71 years (they haven’t won since 1908)? Our hometown heroes have waited a long time to get another chance at winning the World Series. Whether it was a goat curse or just bad management, something kept the Cubbies from going all the way. With the best roster and management team the franchise has seen in decades, the Cubs may turn things around. The energy around Wrigley is electric. Cubs fans have waited a long time for this. But there were a lot of years when the Cubbies weren’t so hot. It didn’t matter, people stuck around and cheered them on. Are we gluttons for punishment or just fiercely loyal? Take a look at the gallery above, from our friends at Calument412.com, to see how Chicago celebrated the Cubs throughout history.
