Additional Information

The Chicago Cubs are a Major League Baseball (MLB) team. Founded in 1876 as the Chicago White Stockings, the team was renamed in 1903. The Cubs were a founding member of the National League, and now play in the National League Central Division. The team is affectionally known as “The Cubbies” or “North Siders” and play their home games at Chicago’s historic Wrigley Field. They have a loyal fan base and—regardless of decades of mixed success—are one of the most popular franchises in baseball. In 2016, the Chicago Cubs went on to break a 108-year losing streak curse with their first World Series championship since 1908. 

The logo that is represented on this button has been the Cubs' logo since 1979 and the silhouette in the background is of the Chicago skyline—a cityscape often ranked as the tallest and most magnificent skylines in the world. It has three of America's five tallest buildings.
