Ernie Banks delighted Wrigley Field fans with his long homeruns, steady fielding and cheerful disposition. ''Mr. Cub'' belted 512 home runs, five times hitting over 40 in a single season. After smashing a record of five grand slams in 1955, he belted 47 homeruns in 1958, the most ever by a shortstop. He also became the first National Leaguer to win the MVP Award in consecutive years (1958 to 1959). Banks' love for the game is still exemplified by his signature phrase, ''Let's play two!'' Hall of Famer, Ernie Banks, has personally hand signed the white pinstripe jersey and inscribed ''512 HRS''.
