    1957 Ernie Banks #55 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop One! Ernie Banks was an immensely popular athlete who went onto have just as strong a following as a show circuit signer. He epitomizes the spirit of the Chicago Cubs, and who has almost single-handedly kept enthusiasm for the franchise alive for several generations of devoted fans. The Hall of Famer, former Negro Leaguer, two-time National League MVP (1957, 1958) and 500 Home Run Club member is seen here with his ever-present smile firmly in place. With just a glance at this superb card, the observer can almost feel Banks' "Let's Play Two!" enthusiasm.

    Graded PSA Gem MT 10. With almost 3,000 submissions to their credit, this is the first and still the only example rated at the pinnacle of the PSA grading scale! This Banks card is the only example at its level, a standing that places the showpiece item securely among the top for the foreseeable future and probably well beyond that. As expected, every facet of its presentation is impeccable, with no disturbance at the corners, edges, borders, and surfaces. The glowing white frame we feel will certainly satisfy the most condition conscience '57 enthusiast. Superlative can be drawn for any and all perspectives! Here's the quintessential Cub, shining forth from the earliest years of his great career in the form of the finest-imaginable gum card memento.
