Description

This vintage sports wall art piece is done in a “Modern-Vintage” style and features the Marquee outside of Wrigley Field in Chicago as it was during the 1945 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Detroit Tigers.

Over the years Wrigley Field has been upgraded and is still the home ballpark of the Chicago Cubs. It was built in 1914 as Weeghman Park for the Chicago Federal League baseball team, the Chicago Whales. The Cubs played their first game at Weeghman Park on April 20, 1916. In 1921, chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. acquired complete control of the Cubs. It was called Cubs Park from 1920 through 1926, before officially becoming Wrigley Field for the 1927 season.
