Sensational pre-rookie image depicting a young Ernie Banks, flanking Cubs manager Phil Cavarretta along with Gene Baker.  Baker would move to second base while Banks played short, where the two played alongside one another rom 1954 through 1957, when Baker would be traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The pre-rookie photo captures both players in late 1953, after the two youngsters were brought together as late season additions.  The photo appears very strong, though some minor discoloration and cracking to the emulsion is evident upon close examination.  Encapsulated and authenticated by PSA/DNA.
