Cubs Wordmark Logo
The Chicago Cubs have one of the most iconic logos in all of the sports. The team has been around since 1876, and its logo has gone through many changes over the years. From its humble beginnings as a simple “C” to today’s classic design, the Cubs logo is instantly recognizable by fans everywhere.
The first version of the Chicago Cubs wordmark was introduced in 1906 and featured an ornate script font with a white background outlined in blue. This version remained unchanged until 1912 when it was replaced with a more modern look featuring block lettering on either side of two baseball bats crossed at center field. This became known as "the double-cross" and is still used today (albeit slightly modified) as part of their official logo mark. In 1916, they added red accents to this design which gave it its signature look that we know now; however minor tweaks have been made over time such as changing from serifed typeface to sans-serifed typeface for better readability on television screens or adding stripes behind certain elements for extra emphasis during special events like World Series appearances or All-Star Games appearances, etc.
Today's version features two overlapping C's inside a circle along with 'Chicago' written across them horizontally above 'Cubs' written vertically below them both surrounded by stars - representing each championship title won throughout history - giving us what many consider one America's greatest logos ever created! It perfectly captures not only what makes up this historic franchise but also serves as an instant reminder that despite any obstacles they may face; no matter how long it takes – there will always be hope found within these beloved symbols every fan holds dear deep down in their heart: Go Cubbies!
