    Description

    1954 Topps Ernie Banks #94 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. 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 close to impeccable, with no disturbance on the surfaces. Vertical centering is just a very small percentage away from perfection. Notable absence of the '54 Topps issue's vexing "print specks" that seem to gravitate to cards with white or yellow backdrops. Forget "Let's Play Two." This beauty will make you say, "I'll Take Two!" Graded SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. One of seven at the NM/MT+ level with two grading higher.
