NICKNAMES OF THE '70'S #34: "MR. CUB" ERNIE BANKS

Time to go ahead and celebrate yet again one of the great's of all-time, and give him a "Nicknames of the '70's" card: "Mr. Cub" Ernie Banks.
Here's the card:


What needs to be said?
The most beloved baseball player in the North Side of Chicago, two-time Most Valuable Player (1958 and 1959), 500+ home runs, 2500+ hits, 11-time all-star and all-around great guy.
Oh, I may as well throw in the 1300+ runs scored, 1600+ runs batted in, 400+ doubles and 90 triples he chipped in as well, setting him on a straight path to the Baseball Hall of Fame with his 1977 induction, a no-brainer in anyone's book!
"Mr. Cub", wish there were more like him!
