Ernie Banks, Lou Brock & Buck O’Neil Chicago Cubs Signed LE Lithograph
“Ernie Banks, Lou Brock & Buck O’Neil ” Chicago Cubs Signed LE Lithograph
Like a father and his two sons, this artwork created by John Martin in 2001 depicts three notables in Chicago Cubs uniforms: negro leagues star John “Buck” O’Neil, who was the first black coach in the Major Leagues, eventual Hall-of-Famer Lou Brock, whom O’Neil discovered and signed to his first big-league contract, and fellow Hall of Famer Ernie Banks, who also considered O’Neil a father figure. Each of these prints is numbered as this was a limited edition of 1500. They are also signed on the bottom border in 8/10 pencil by the artist John Martin, Banks, O’Neil and Brock.
The lithograph measures 24 x 18.5″ and average EX-MT.
Certificate of Authenticity from Lou Brock & Lelands.
