Description

    Cal Ripken Jr. And Ernie Banks Happy Birthday Single Signed Baseballs Lot Of 2. Mr. Cub, and Mr. Oriole as well as the position of shortstop are well represented in this lot of Hall of Fame legends. Ernie Banks sunny personality is legend, as is his refrain on a sunny day: "Let's play two!" The first black player on the Cubs, Banks came up as a shortstop, where he won consecutive MVP awards, but actually played more games at first base. After Banks's retirement in 1971, the Cubs hoisted a pinstriped pennant with his number 14 atop the left field foul pole at Wrigley Field. He was the first Cubs player to have his number retired. The baseball fan on your birthday list will cherish this OML (Selig) baseball signed by Ernie on the sweet spot with "Happy B' day" inscription. Ripken is the holder of one of Baseball's unbreakable records 2632 consecutive games. The "Iron Man" single handedly saved America's National pastime after the strike of 1994. He has added a Mint blue ballpoint signature to a OAL 2130/2131 commemorative game issued baseball with orange stitching.
