This year the Chicago Cubs will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of Wrigley Field. We’re celebrating here at Newmanology by displaying some amazing vintage Cubs baseball scorecards, from the 1940s-60s. The covers were designed and illustrated by Otis Shepard, who is well-known for the advertising posters and billboards he created as the longtime art director of Wrigley Gum (the Cubs were owned at the time by Wrigley). The scorecards are via Cubs By the Numbers, a brilliant and obsessive Chicago Cubs website packed with archival goodies.
