Many of these B&W's photos are 'press' photos while some are reproductions of photos taken by a Chicago Cub's photographer George Brace. He photographed Chicago baseball from 1929 in both Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park. Peppered within are Chicago Cubs, Bears, and Chicago Cardinal scorecards & newsletters. Chicago Cardinals football team called Wrigley home 1931-1939.
