Over the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame weekend, MAB Celebrity Services will host a public autograph signing for Chicago Cubs Class of 1977 Baseball Hall of Fame shortstop/ first baseman, Ernie Banks. The signing is part of the Annual MAB Hall of Fame Spectacular which will be held inside the Tunnicliff Inn in Cooperstown, New York.
Despite never playing a single inning of high school baseball, Ernie Banks is one of the finest power hitters in baseball history. It's is believed that Banks was discovered by the Kansas City Monarchs during a pick-up softball game when he was 19 years old. Banks played for the Monarchs from 1950-1953 and was sold to the Chicago Cubs during the 1953 season. Banks made his MLB debut on September 26, 1971 and became the first African-American player in franchise history. In 1954, Ernie Banks hit 19 homeruns and 79 RBI while finishing second to Wally Moon for the 1954 NL Rookie of the Year. By 1955, Banks was one of the best players in the majors hitting 44 homeruns and 117 RBI. In 1958 and 1959, Banks hit a staggering 92 homeruns and 272 RBI on his way to back-to-back NL MVP Awards. Ernie Banks played 19 seasons with the Chicago Cubs and appeared in 14 MLB All-Star Games. He is the Cubs All-time leader in homeruns (512) and RBI (1,636).
