Signatures: "Ernie/Banks" and on verso: "Earl Robinson", 4½x5¼ album leaf. BANKS (1931-2015) will always be"Mr. Cub," the most popular player the franchise ever had. He played for the Cubs his entire career (1953-1971), retiring with 512 lifetime home runs. The first black player on the Cubs, Banks came up as a shortstop, where he won consecutive MVP awards (1958-1959), but actually played more games at first base.

ROBINSON (1936-2014) played eight games at 3rd base for the 1958 L.A. Dodgers, then was a Baltimore Orioles outfielder in 1961, 1962 and 1964. His best season was 1961, when he compiled a .455 slugging average in 96 games. Irregular top edge where leaf was removed from album. Toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
