Black & Whites & Scorecards & Newsletters
Most of these photos are 'press' photos while some are reproductions of photos taken by a photographer named George Brace. He photographed Chicago baseball from 1929 in both Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park. Peppered within the photos are scorecards & newsletters.
I begin with 1928 scorecard ...

Spring Camp in 1928 
 I added this information below
 Chicago Cardinals football team
 This football team called Wrigley Field home from 1931 through 1939. During this period there was three teams that called Wrigley Field home.

'Red' Grange played in 1925 and then from 1929-1934

 After some research I determined that this photo 
was taken in 1931
