    1976 Ernie Banks Game Worn, Signed Chicago Cubs Coach's Jersey.

    UPDATE: Please note that the Cubs logo and right sleeve patches have been restored, but the jersey is otherwise original and unaltered.

    With an infectious smile, Ernie Banks was a perfect candidate to spread his vast baseball knowledge to another generation after he hung up the cleats. Banks wore this "Wilson [size] 42" pinstriped jersey during the home portion of the 1976 season as a coach. Dual circular sleeve patches add a serious dose of aesthetics to the knit garment. The right sleeve contains a National League Centennial patch while the opposite side features a Cubs 1876-1976 patch. An oversized Cubs emblem is applied over the heart. Situated on the reverse are the since retired "14" digits - which have experienced marvelous sun-fading from a multitude of day games. Remnants of where a memorial band once stood are visible on the left sleeve. We are unsure who the Cubs paid tribute to that season. Banks signed the lowermost region in 5/10 blue felt tip. Applied in the collar is a Wilson size tag and "14 76 1 42" swatch denoting player number, year, set number and size. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
