Looking for Font on 1950 Chicago Cubs Program


Recommended Posts


I am having a hard time identifying the font for the title 'CHICAGO CUBS WRIGLEY FIELD' on the attached program from 1950. It was also used in the 1949 program. Subsequent programs switched over to a non-variable width font, so . These covers were done by Dorothy & Otis Shepard.

At first glance, it would seem too easy to identify, but many hours have since passed in my search online.

Am looking to create a similar poster. Commercial or online fonts are fine. Open to alternates.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks, Kevin. I suspected it might have been hand lettered. Will take a look at the similar typefaces you suggested.
