A Blast From the Past

With the World Series in full swing I thought this was the appropriate time to share a piece of Cubs history. This is also a special day in the history of the CCO, one year ago today this site officially launched and took on a life of its own. Everyone here has enjoyed sharing our passion with the rest of the Cubs Faithful. One of the added benefits is receiving emails from Cubs fans everywhere either looking for help with a particular question or just letting us know how much the site is appreciated. From time to time we receive some very cool emails and this was one I asked for permission to share.

As we all know next season is the 100th Anniversary of the Cubs first World Series Championship. I recently received an email from a reader looking for information about a scorebook from the 1907 World Series. She sent me photos of the book and said I could share them with the readers of this site.

I asked for a little history on the book and here is her message concerning the history of the scorebook:

“I don’t really have much information about the scorebook except that the owner’s father went to the 1907 World Series when he was about 20 years old. We find it interesting that a young, single man took such care of the scorebook and protected it. He passed it on to his son who has also protected it through the years.”

Here are the photos that I was sent. This, in my humble opinion, is an amazing part of the History of the Chicago Cubs and I would like to thank the person that sent me the story and photos….I hope everyone enjoys.

The site will be going through several changes in the coming weeks and all we can ask for is everyone’s patience through the transition. Remember you can reach any of us via email through the contact tab in the scoreboard. I would like to thank everyone that has made this site such a big success and I can only imagine what the next year will bring.
