Hall of Fame infielder Ernie Banks was nicknamed “Mr. Cub” throughout his 19 year career and deservedly so. The Chicago Cubs legend was a 14 time all-star, two time NL MVP, and 500+ homerun hitter during his impressive tenure at the Friendly Confines.
Few players in Chicago Cubs history could hit a baseball better than Banks could. In 1970, Mr. Cub became a member of baseball’s most exclusive club when he hit his 500th homerun at Wrigley Field. There is no more fitting way to commemorate the illustrious career of the Chicago great than with one of our authentic Ernie Banks signed baseballs. These autographed Official Major League Baseballs include rare inscriptions from Mr. Cub that pay tribute to some of his finest baseball moments, such as “512 HRs” and “HOF 77”. A baseball signed by one of the greatest Chicago Cubs of all-time is not just a great addition to your baseball memorabilia collection, but a valuable investment for the future as well.
Banks cemented his name in Chicago history when the Cubs decided to retire his number 14 and honor it at Wrigley Field. Make sure to take a look at the rest of our exclusive Chicago Cubs selection that features incredible pieces like Ernie Banks signed jerseys and photos.
