1906 Cubs &. White Sox Rooting Club
Only twice in the history of Major League Baseball have two teams from the same city (other than New York) faced each other in the World Series: Chicago in 1906 and St. Louis in 1944. The Cubs were favored to beat the light-hitting White Sox, but the team from the South Side prevailed in 6 games. Pins were made for both teams, often as matched pairs. Some pins were made prior to the World Series, with each team being declared the winner. Even though this World Series was played over 100 years ago, I believe not all of the pins have emerged in the pinback hobby. Some pins for the White Sox are conspicuously absent.
A matched pair of “Rooting Club” pins.
