Let’s play two: Ernie Banks on the cover of Sports Illustrated

Great to see old friend and everyone’s hero in Chicago, Ernie Banks, on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated. He is featured in their annual “Where are they now” edition.

Still looks like he could hit 40 homers.

Here’s a SI cover with Ernie and Pete Rose in 1969. Note the date: Sept. 8. Cubs still held a 1 1/2 game lead over the Mets. Alas, it wouldn’t last.
