The story of what happened to the Chicago Cubs franchise on a warm, rainy night in November in the seventh game of the 2016 World Series will be told a hundred years from now, just as the last century overflowed with tales of strange curses and heartbreaking collapses for the club. However, the result of this game differed from all the others over the previous 107 years. It ended with Chicago winning the World Series, washing away the most infamous drought in American sports.

Sports Illustrated's Chicago Cubs World Series championship special commemorative issue details every step of that remarkable story, from the creation of the team's roster to the champagne-drenched celebration in the locker room moments after the Cubs' historic victory. The past and present of the club's history is captured in 116 colorful pages featuring Si's trademark prose and photographs. Relive the team's dominant regular season and exciting playoff run. Go deep with probing looks at staff aces Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester, clubhouse leader Anthony Rizzo, all-everything slugger Kris Bryant and unorthodox manager Joe Maddon. Get a blast from the past with a march through the Cubbies' memorable history, including its most inglorious moments. Pay homage to the team's faithful Northside fanbase and its jewel box of a ballpark, Wrigley Field. This special edition is a fitting salute to one of the most storied franchises in all of sports.
