Ernie Banks 2004 Donruss Playoff Honors

Ernie Banks 2004 Donruss Playoff Honors

What a beauty here!!

Issued in 2004 by Donruss as part of their Playoff Honors set, this card is a must-have for anyone that values Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks.

The card is beautifully done, and the muted tones in the background really add a nice vintage-feel.  Seeing that Ivy covered wall in the outfield just brings me right back to Wrigley.

And I have to say that the light background really allows for the Blue and Red from Banks’ uniform leap off of the card.

Under Banks’ nameplate it says ‘Shortsop’ as his position.  But from the vantage point of the photo, I cannot quite tell if he is playing shortstop or first base in the shot.  And the glove he is wearing is concealed just enough to not be clear if it is an infielder model or first base mitt…

Regardless, this is a classic addition to my growing Ernie Banks baseball card collection!!  YES!!!
