Ernie Banks Signed 16x20 Photo
Hand-signed, 16x20 photo of Chicago Cubs legend Ernest (Ernie) Banks, nicknamed "Mr. Cub" and "Mr. Sunshine," who played shortstop and first baseman for the Chicago Cubs between 1953 and 1971.
In 1958 and again in 1959, Banks was named National League MVP, and was the Cubs' first Gold Glove winner in 1960. Banks won the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award in 1968, an honor recognizing both outstanding playing ability and personal character. In 1970, Banks hit his 500th career home run at Wrigley Field. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. Banks was known for his catchphrase, "It's a beautiful day for a ballgame... Let's play two!" which memorialized his desire to play a doubleheader every day.
