Fans, public officials and many more came out for the chance to catch a glimpse of and snap photos with the 24-karat gem, which has gotten a significant makeover since the North Siders last won the World Series in 1908.

Since getting a redesign from Tiffany & Co. in 2000, the trophy features 30 flags -- one for each big league team -- with latitude/longitude lines symbolizing the world and vermeil stitches akin to those on a baseball. Commissioner Rob Manfred's signature is etched on the base.
