    Description

    1954 Topps Ernie Banks #94 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. This Banks rookie card is one of just 5 examples at its level (two higher), a standing that places the showpiece item securely among the top two percent of its kind holdered to date by SGC. An ever-popular, debut-year collectible honors the man who 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. As expected, every facet of its presentation is impeccable, with no disturbance on the surfaces (with barely a hint in the impossibly delicate and dark green, full-bleed on the reverse), close to perfect centering, and a notable absence of the '54 Topps issue's vexing "print specks." Forget "Let's Play Two." This beauty will make you say "I'll take Two!"
