The Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908, but they still have the game's most loyal fans. The Cardinals have won the World Series more than any other National League team in history. The Cubs have the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field, where fans watch games from apartment rooftops across the street. The Cardinals have "The Birds on the Bat," one of the most distinctive logos in all of sports. The Cubs all-time roster features Hall of Famers Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, and the incredible Ernie Banks. The Cardinals counter with Dizzy Dean, Bob Gibson, and the great Stan "the Man" Musial. In 1998, the Cubs' Sammy Sosa broke Roger Maris's single-season home run record with 66 dingers. But, in the same year, the Cardinals' Mark McGwire also broke the record, surpassing Sosa's mark as well, with an astounding 70 home runs.

Baker & Taylor
An illustrated celebration of the Chicago Cubs, combines vintage images and portraits of modern-day stars with a narrative history of the team and its accomplishments and profiles of such outstanding players as Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, Ernie Banks, and Sammy Sosa.
