Chicago Cubs Ernie Banks âLetâs Play Two!â 8×10 Photograph (SGA UnderFifty Series) Framed Description
Ernie Banks delighted Wrigley Field fans with his long home runs, steady fielding and cheerful disposition. ‘Mr. Cub’ belted 512 home runs, five times hitting over 40 in a single season. After smashing a record five grand slams in 1955, he belted 47 round-trippers in 1958, the most ever by a National League shortstop. He also became the first National Leaguer to win the MVP Award in consecutive years (1958 to 1959) . After Mr. Banks retired in 1971 he became the first Cubs player to have his number retired. Banks’ love for the game and the fans is still exemplified by his signature phrase, ‘Let’s Play Two!’ (remember double-headers?). Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977, this classic photograph of Ernie kicking up his heals in front of Wrigley Field is a beauty. The SGA UnderFifty Series is our best framed value and the perfect way to add this classic Cub to your wall at a great price. Quality Framed, this is a timeless piece of Sports Art celebrating an all-time baseball great!
