A One-of-a-Kind Baseball Artwork Featuring "Mr. Cub" Ernie Banks
The Hall of Famer Ernie Banks is hand-painted on a vintage baseball glove. A member of the 500 Home Run club (512), Ernie Banks played 19 seasons for the Chicago Cubs from 1953 until his retirement in 1971.
The vintage glove is a 1950's Wilson Two Finger model, an ideal canvas to feature the "Let's Play Two" man himself. The glove is about 9 inches wide by 8 inches tall.
The front side features a hand-painted portrait of Ernie Banks. The portrait is a bit bigger than the size of a baseball. Also included is a reference to his nickname as the beloved "Mr. Cub", his retired number 14, his Hall of Fame induction in 1977, and his 512 Homers.
The back side of the glove includes Ernie Banks' famous catchphrase, "Let's Play Two".
The Wilson Two Finger glove tells you right where to put 'em.
The art was created by professional artist Sean Kane, whose painted glove collectibles have been recognized by ESPN.com, NBC Sports.com, exhibited in New York City, and will be part of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum's permanent collection.
This keepsake glove art of Ernie Banks is sold.
