A natural rivalry brought to life in the 1906 World Series, the Chicago Cubs and White Sox sustained their competitive flames well after those “Hitless Wonders” conquered a Cub roster that had won 116 games. Issued at West Side Park for the 1912 exhibition, this program is among the earliest and most scarce survivors from the time-honored Windy City tradition. The 16-page guide is titled “Chicago Championship Series, 1912” and features menacing bear illustrations on its front cover. The interior pages are home to individual player photographs. Displayed two per page, the duos include Joseph Tinker and John Evans, a natural coupling because of their double play exploits, though it’s well documented that the two despised one another. The center pages feature pre-printed lineups and scoring grids that document a 4-2 Cubs victory in which Jimmy Sheckard homered for the North Siders. With covers and pages intact, the program presents (VG) with faint moisture-induced discoloration and what appears to be a burn mark (and partial piece missing) at the upper left corner of the front cover.
