1930's-60's Andy Frain Curse Of The Billy Goat Era Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field Usher's Uniform w/ Pants, Jacket & Hat!

-Comes With Letter Of Authentication from MEARS!


 The Curse of the Billy Goat was a curse placed on the Chicago Cubs in 1945, by Billy Goat Tavern owner William Sianis. The curse lasted 71 years, from 1945 to 2016. During Game 4 of the 1945 World Series at Wrigley Field, Sianis's pet goat, named Murphy, was bothering other fans, and so the pair were asked to leave the stadium by the Chicago Cubs Ushers. Outraged, Sianis allegedly declared, "Them Cubs, they ain't gonna win no more", which had been interpreted to mean that the Cubs would never win another National League Pennant, at least for the remainder of Sianis's life.

The Cubs lost the 1945 World Series to the Detroit Tigers, and did not win a pennant or World Series again until 2016. The Cubs had last won the World Series in 1908. After the incident with Sianis and Murphy, the Cubs did not play in the World Series for the next 71 years until, on the 46th anniversary of William Sianis's death, the curse was broken when they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5–0 in Game 6 of the 2016 National League Championship Series to win the NL pennant. The Cubs then defeated the Cleveland Indians 8–7 in 10 innings in Game 7 to win the World Series, 108 years after their last win.

 It is safe to say no other group of Baseball Ushers had a larger influence on their teams future then the Chicago Cubs Ushers who removed William Sianis that night in 1945.

 Offered is a vintage Andy Frain usher's uniform worn during Chicago Cubs games at Wrigley Field. Included are a circa 1960's era jacket and pants in navy blue with gold/red trim plus a circa 1930's era white cap with "Chicago" embroidered in gold.
