Runing Into Ernie Banks

Back in 2009 I went to a card convention in Overland Park, KS and randomly saw Ernie Banks walking around. I unfortunately only had my crappy cellphone camera with me that day [this was nearly six years ago!] and so I snapped the best photo I could. Ernie was wearing a Kansas City Monarchs hat which was the team Banks played for in the Negro Leagues from 1950-1953 before joining the Cubs.


Here is Ernie's obituary in the New York Times.
