Like I'm overdue to get some new Cubs gear and probably will soon/over Xmas, but come next summer any T-shirt glorifying the title feels like living in the past to me. I'm more interested in memorabilia stuff like the press plate of the Tribune front page, or maybe a nicely made pennant, stuff like that.
No worries, I'm the same as well. I might get one World Series championship shirt, but I'm more interested in the memorabilia. I already got a nicely made NL Central pennant and an NLCS pennant for this year, and I hope to get a World Series championship pennant to hang on the wall. I also bought two nicely framed pictures (16" by 20") at my local Costco today - one had the team on Wrigley Field wearing the NL Championship t-shirts, and the other had photos of West Side Grounds in 1908 and Wrigley Field in 2016 (with the team logos from both years). One of the employees at Costco also said that there was a shipment of World Series t-shirts expected tomorrow or early next week, so if you don't want to pay $28 for one (and you live in the Chicago area), Costco will probably have them at a significantly cheaper price.
