Sporting KC Mural

This mural commemorating Sporting KC’s two MLS cup championships (2000, 2013) and four US Open Cup championships (2004, 2012, 2015, 2017) is on the North side of the Globe Storage and Transfer Co building.

Close examination reveals a bonus… a ghost sign (faded painted advertising) partially covered up by the Sporting mural running vertical along the Northeast corner of the building… the word “STORAGE” can be faintly seen.

Located at 1712 Main Street, Kansas City, Missouri, The Globe Building was designed by Kansas City architect James Oliver Hogg and constructed by James T. Patterson in 1902. Below is an image from 1940 showing the painted sign on the South side of the building
