  • 1908 World Series Awards

    Hello, I am new to the forum. Just wanted to share photos of my 1908 World Series Cubs awards. My great grandfather, Charles G. Williams, was the Secretary- Treasurer for the Cubs for approx. 14 years, during the time in which they won the World Series in 1908.

    I saw that you were in todays Chicago Suntimes, I was surprised how cheap there selling for. I think they were going for 20 grand. That was todays paper . If you do sell em I hope you get more, I would think they are worth alot more.

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

      The items are being auctioned through Hunt Auctions so there is no limit to the final price; the highest bidder will win the auction. I am hoping that they go for more also, as I think they are quite rare and significant pieces.

          Yes, the Chicago Sun Times contacted me for an interview. Also, I was contacted by Phil Rogers from the Chicago Tribune; that article appeared in the July 9th paper. http://http://articles.chicagotribun...fficial-scorer
