Chicago Cubs 1969 Home lightweight wool flannel blend jersey # 26
The 1969 season marked the 100th Anniversary of the forming of the Cincinnati Red Stockings, the first professional baseball club. Each team wore a patch on their jersey commemorating this event. The Chicago Cubs created a memorable summer for their fans as they made a run at the National League pennant. Sweet Swingin' Billy Williams batted .293 as he protected the ivy on the outfield walls of Wrigley Field. The Cubs fell short of catching the Amazing Mets as the curse of the goat remained within Wrigleyville.
