Commemorating a World Series Champion
One year later, the 1907 Chicago White Sox, fresh off a World Series win, celebrated with something truly revolutionary—the first commemorative sleeve patch in MLB history.
The May 4, 1907 edition of Sporting Life described the White Sox' uniforms:
The White Sox are real modest in letting the public know that they are the champions of the world. Instead of "World's Champions" being across their breasts a la the New York Giants, they have their emblem in a monogram on the shirt sleeves.
In 1917 the White Sox changed the most enduring and famous logos in baseball, by changing the style of the large “S,” and the small “O” inside the top loop of the “S” and the small “X” inside the bottom loop. All again in the color of blue.
1912 - 1916
In 1912 the White Sox debuted one of the most enduring and famous logos in baseball, a large “S” in a Roman style font, with a small “O” inside the top loop of the “S” and a small “X” inside the bottom loop. All in the color of blue.

The 1904 White Sox logo is again an old english letter “C” in blue. The tail was removed and a accent point is added in the middle of the “C” and the shape is now longitude.
