(LOT 429)
1954 Topps #94 Ernie Banks Rookie PSA 8 NM-MT

BANKS ROOKIE!!! MLI is extremely pleased to be offering the rookie card of one of the game's most beloved players, Ernie "Let's Play Two" Banks. Banks' popularity has never waned with collectors, and especially not with Cubs fans. His 1954 Topps issue is on the want list of most serious collectors, and it's not too often that a PSA 8 NM-MT specimen comes up for auction. Well, if you've been holding out for an exceptionally high-grade example, then your wait is finally over. This gorgeous card has been graded PSA 8 NM-MT and is one to own in today's market. Banks had a six-year stretch in the early years of his career that was on par with the likes of Mays and Aaron. He was a Gold Glove winner at short and an 11-time All-Star who also became the first and only shortstop to win the MVP award in back-to-back seasons. But as the man himself said, in regards to winning awards, "Awards mean a lot, but they don't say it all. The people in baseball mean more to me than statistics." It's no wonder why "Mr. Cub" is still so heavily admired and avidly collected to this day. Men like him, are and will always be, few and far between. Own this Rookie of Ernie Banks from 1954!
