The Chicago Union Printers Baseball Association was founded in the spring of 1908 by members of the Chicago Typographical Union Number 16. In the late summer of 1908, the Chicago team, along with teams from Boston, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Washington, and Pittsburgh participated in the first Union Printers International Baseball League tournament, hosted by New York City. During the course of the league's existence, St. Paul, Detroit, Hamilton (Ontario) joined with the original eight cities. Some cities dropped the championship. The papers of the Chicago Union Printers Baseball Association consist of a few issues of "Typo Sports", a newspaper covering the Union Printers International Baseball League, several tournament programs, and a brief historical sketch of the league.
