Ernest "Ernie" Banks (born January 31, 1931 in Dallas, Texas), nicknamed "Mr. Cub", is a former Major League Baseball shortstop and first baseman. He played his entire 19-year baseball career with the Chicago Cubs (1953-1971). He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977.
Wrigley Field, nicknamed "The Friendly Confines" by the legendary Ernie Banks, is the 10th smallest actively used ballpark, yet has the greatest reputation. It's the oldest National League ballpark, the second oldest active major league ballpark, and the only remaining Federal League park, so it's safe to say that the home of the Chicago Cubs deserves some worthy praise for making such a deep impact on the history of baseball.
This Stadium Collection wool blend banner is the perfect portrayal of Wrigley Field's history, featuring embroidered team lettering and logos, as well as an appliqué embroidered patch with a black and white animated print of the field and its unique hand-turned scoreboard. Whether you decide to hang this collective Cubs piece at your home or at the office, you'll be able to boast about your vast knowledge of baseball history, and maybe even give a few lessons!
In 1969, the Chicago Cubs created a memorable summer for their fans as they made a run at the National League pennant. The Cubs fell short of catching the Amazing Mets as the curse of the goat remained within Wrigleyville. Relive the days of the legendary Ernie Banks with this Mitchell & Ness jersey. Mitchell & Ness pays attention to every last detail in an attempt to reproduce these jerseys exactly as they were back in the day.
