Ernie Banks 2012 Topps ‘Gold Standard’

Ernie Banks 2012 Topps ‘Gold Standard’

It’s always nice when you can scoop up a card of Ernie Banks…  Especially when it is affordable.

And especially when it looks like this:

This card is from Series 1 of the 2012 issue.  It is part of the ‘Gold Standards’ subset and it pays tribute to Ernie Banks hitting his 500th career home run on May 12, 1970.

At the time that Banks connected for number 500, he became just the ninth member of the ‘500 Home Runs Club’ – and was the first infielder to join the elite group.

Atta Boy Ernie!!!
