    I don’t know who created this signage system; I was simply impressed by it on my first-ever visit to Wrigley Field to watch a Chicago Cubs baseball game last month. Gorgeous and effective wayfinding.

    1. That’s not quite Eames. It looks more like one of the conventional Clarendons, see this close-up by Dan Gaken:

    2. it’s Clarendon LT Pro Extra Bold by Linotype

    3. That’s entirely possible! I must admit I have difficulties finding differences between the various digital versions based on Haas Clarendon (beyond character set, non-English and punctuation glyphs, licensing details, style range etc.). Here’s Clarendon LT Pro Extra Bold compared to Linotype’s older Clarendon Std Bold (also by Adobe) and Bitstream’s Clarendon BT Pro Heavy.
