Today kicks off Statues Week, where I feature celebrity statues. To start the week, I have a Special Edition of Celebrity Jersey Cards featuring statues wearing jerseys.
"Mr. Cub" Ernie Banks certainly earned that title. His statue in inscribed with "Let's play two," but originally, the apostrophe in "let's" was left out. It was quickly fixed by the sculptor though. Unveiled in 2008, it is 7 feet tall on a 4 foot granite base. It now stands outside the front gates at Wrigley Field. Though Banks never played in even a playoff game, his statue wore a Cubs jersey during the 2016 run to the World Series.
