Description

    Ernie Banks "Happy Birthday" Inscription Single Signed Baseball. He will always be "Mr. Cub," the most popular player the Cubs ever had. His 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. Perfect for the fan of Chicago's North Siders' or any baseball fan in general.
