ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Ernie Banks delighted Wrigley Field fans with his long home runs, steady fielding and cheerful disposition. "Mr. Cub" belted 512 home runs, five times hitting over 40 in a single season. After smashing a record five grand slams in 1955, he belted 47 round-trippers in 1958, the most ever by a National League shortstop. He also became the first National Leaguer to win the MVP Award in consecutive years (1958 to 1959) . After Mr. Banks retired in 1971 he became the first Cubs player to have his number retired. Banks' love for the game and the fans is still exemplified by his signature phrase, "Let's Play Two!" (remember double-headers?). Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977, this classic photograph of Ernie kicking up his heals in front of Wrigley Field is part of our Exclusive SG Signature Series, unsigned displays that include an SGA facsimile signature plate. In this case we've combined an 16x20 or 11x14 of this vintage photo with a plate that features Ernie elegant signature, engraving of his beloved "Mr Cub" inscription, and his famous "Let's Play Two!" quote to create a timeless piece of Sports Art from a very special player in Cubs...and baseball...history. A stunning piece that is sure to get a big reaction and the perfect gift for any Cubs Fan!
