This 1954 Topps Rookie card of the Cub’s great HOF shortstop Ernie Banks has been appropriately graded a PSA Mint 9. Currently, of the almost 1,800 examples of the Ernie Banks Rookie that have been graded by both PSA and SGC combined, only two (both PSA) have been graded higher! Ernie Banks is still the only shortstop to reach both the elusive 500 home run mark and win two consecutive MVP awards. The presentation of his young portrait image, and classic batting stance are nothing short of sensational set against a virtually un-improvable snow white backdrop. All edging is razor sharp and the surface exhibits all original gloss. Overall, an absolute top of the line example of the great Ernie Banks first Major League card.
