How long is the Cubs' season-ticket waiting list?

There was an item in the Chicago Tribune about how certain Cubs playoff game attendees acquired their tickets. One woman won the cubs.com lottery. She has been sitting on the Cubs season-ticket waiting list for five years, and she’s still No. 1234 in the queue at last count. Yeesh! And she’s been waiting five years! How long IS that list? Longest in baseball? Some NFL waiting lists are decades long. I just read the Broncos list is 190 years long. The Packers, Steelers and Redskins lists are also on that level. The Bears’ list is probably about 20 years long. That means someone who joins the list today could expect to receive an invitation from the Bears to purchase two or four season tickets around 2038.
