Chicago Evening American Cubs and White Sox Pin Sets Overview
The Chicago Evening American newspaper created at least two sets of pins featuring the hometown Cubs and White Sox.
The company’s first issue came in the early 1920s. These pins featured black and white cartoon images of players along with their name. On the exterior border, the pins read “The Peach Baseball Scores” with the “Chicago Evening American” name at the bottom. These pins are scarce and extremely difficult to find.
A second, more common issue was printed in 1930. These featured a black and white head shot of a player with his position, name, and team at the top. For team, the pin either read ‘Cubs’ or simply ‘Sox’. The Evening American name was again printed at the bottom. The apparent manufacturer, the Parisian Novelty Company of Chicago, was also printed around the edge of the pin in small type.
