    Description

    1954 Topps Ernie Banks #94 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. One of the most popular debut-year card honors goes to the man who epitomizes the spirit of the Chicago Cubs. "Mr. Cub" was almost single-handedly the inspiration for the enthusiasm for the franchise for a generation of devoted fans. His career began in the Negro Leagues but the breaking down of the color barrier gave baseball a future Hall of Famer who was honored twice with the National League MVP award (1957, 1958) and membership in the esteemed 500 Home Run Club. As expected, almost every facet of its presentation screams quality. Notably absent are the '54 Topps issue's vexing "print specks" one commonly experiences on cards with white or yellow backgrounds. An exceptionally crisp example. Graded SGC 88 NM/MT 8. One of eighteen at the NM/MT level with nine rated higher.
