RIP, Mr. Banks

As of now you've all heard that baseball lost a legend, Ernie Banks. I've heard and read nothing but good things about Mr. Banks, both before and after he passed. He certainly was one of the many gems that baseball has provided us with.

Sadly, he never got a taste of the World Series. I wonder if that would have been different had more teams made the playoffs back then, a la today. Alas, we'll never know.

A few years ago, I picked this Hillshire Farms Ernie Banks auto up. I had seen these cards around, and they could have been had pretty cheap. I don't think I paid much more than $5 for this, as the time. I'm certainly glad I did.
