    I saw the thread title and thought this would be pictures of the Cubs winning the Series.

    here is a pic of The Cubs in 1908

    And in picture from the 08 series- Ty Cobb hitting a triple.




    Also must refrain from joke about Hitler and the picture in first post.

    One of only two players in baseball history with more than 400 HR and, when you subtract all his HR, he still had more than 3000 hits. (Aaron is the other)
