Ernie Banks 500th Home Run Print
The day began with rain on May 12, 1970, in Chicago, leaving that afternoon’s Cubs vs. Braves game at Wrigley Field very much in doubt.
Ernie Banks, however, could always provide sunshine.
With the skies clearing in the bottom of the second inning, Banks hit a 1-and-1 pitch from Pat Jarvis over the left field wall for his 500th career home run. With the blast, Banks became just the ninth member of the 500-home run club.
This Chicago Cubs poster makes for a perfect gift for the Cubs fan in your life. It would complete any office, game room or man cave of an Cubs fan. And you don't even have to worry about a frame - all prints ship framed.
