FANTASY COACH CARD- 1973 ERNIE BANKS

Here’s a “Fantasy Card” of all-time great baseball player and legend Ernie Banks, “Mr. Cub”, who moved on to coaching for the Chicago Cubs after retiring :


The face of the Chicago Cubs organization, Banks put together a colossal 19-year career that saw him slam 512 home runs, cop two Most Valuable Player Awards, and get named to eleven all-star teams while excelling at both shortstop and first base.
By the time he retired as a player he collected 2583 hits with 1636 runs batted in and 1305 runs scored along with a .274 average over 2528 games and 9421 at-bats.
Needless to say when his eligibility for the Hall of Fame came up in 1977, he was a lock, and was elected on his first try.
Just one of the most well-liked all-around good guys the game has ever seen...
