ERNIE BANKS (1931-2015) will always be "Mr. Cub," the most popular player the Cubs 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, but actually played more games at first base. He led the League in home runs in 1958 and 1960 and in RBIs 1958-59. Banks was All-Star eleven times, was MVP in 1958-59 and won a Gold Glove in 1960. He was the first Cub to have his number retired (1971), and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1977. GAYLORD PERRY (b. 1938), pitched for the San Francisco Giants (1962-1971), Cleveland Indians (1972-1975), Texas Rangers (1975-1977, 1980), San Diego Padres (1978-1979), New York Yankees (1980), Atlanta Braves (1981), Seattle Mariners (1982-1983) and Kansas City Royals (1983). He won the AL Cy Young Award in 1972 and the NL Cy Young Award in 1978, becoming the first pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in both leagues. In 22 years, Perry won 314 games, striking out 3,534 batters. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991. Gaylord Perry and his brother Jim Perry won a combined 529 Major Leagues games, a record bested only by the Joe and Phil Niekro. Perry was renowned for throwing the illegal spitball... and for getting away with it. Roland "ROLLIE" FINGERS (b. 1946) played for the Oakland Athletics from 1968 to 1976, helping the team to 3 consecutive World Championships (1972-1974). The pitcher also played for the San Diego Padres (1977-1980) and the Milwaukee Brewers (1981-1985) during his 17-year major league career. Fingers, who was known for his sharp slider, notched 341 career saves and appeared in 16 World Series games. In 1981, he won both the American League MVP and Cy Young Award. Fingers was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1992. Outfielder/first baseman AL OLIVER (b. 1946) played for 7 ML teams, but is best remembered for his decade with the Pirates (1968-1977) He batted over .300 nine straight times, and is among the Pirates' all-time leaders in doubles, home runs and extra-base hits. He won the NL batting crown with the Montreal Expos in 1982. Oliver was the first player to amass 200 hits and 100 RBI in a season in both the AL and the NL. A star pitcher with two teams in the Bay Area (Oakland and San Francisco), VIDA BLUE (b. 1949) won both the American League's Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player - rarely given to a pitcher - in 1971. That year he went 24-8 for the A's, with a league-leading 1.82 ERA and 8 shutouts, plus 301 strikeouts. A power pitcher, unusual for a southpaw, Blue was second only to Nolan Ryan as the hardest thrower of his era. In a career stretching from 1969 to 1986, Blue won 209 games. What he could have achieved without a serious cocaine problem can only be guessed. JERRY REUSS (b. 1949) pitched in the Majors from 1969 to 1990, mostly for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Pittsburgh Pirates. During that time, he compiled a 220-191 record with a career ERA of 3.64, tallying 39 shutouts and 1,907 strikeouts. Reuss was also an All-Star in 1975 and 1980, led the National League in shutouts in 1980 and had five seasons with 15 wins or more (1973-1975, 1980 and 1982). Something of a workhorse, he led the National League in games started in 1973 and had 10 seasons where he pitched 200 or more innings (1971, 1973-1977, 1980, 1982, 1983 and 1985). Reuss also threw a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants on June 27, 1980. After leaving the majors, he became a broadcast for the Angels and Dodgers and a pitching coach for the Iowa Cubs. (The pronunciation of his name, "Royce", inspired the nickname "Rolls".) DAVE CASH (b. 1948) was an underrated second baseman who hit .300 four times and appeared on three All-Star rosters. His lifetime .984 fielding average is the National League record for second basemen. He hit .300 in 1974, scored 89 runs, stole 20 bases, and drove in a career-high 58; in 1975 he upped his BA to .305 while leading the league with 213 hits, finishing second in the National League with 40 doubles and a career-high 111 runs. On September 1, 1971, Cash was part of the first all-black starting lineup in Major League history. That Pirates team went on to win the World Series. Cash was tossed out of his first game as a minor league manager (Utica, 2007) for arguing an umpire's call. Signatures light but legible. Fine condition.
