I sat next chair to him in a barbershop a few years ago and listened to him spin yarns. He was in rough shape, hobbled and arthritic but in good humor.Shocked

And another of the "greatest" goes the way of all flesh Sad What a super guy and greater human being. I don't believe anything negative was ever written about him. Thanks for all the memories, Mr. Cub!! FTRPLT

Saw this on another forum:
First man to win MVP playing for a last place team (1958). And he did it again the next season.

I had the opportunity to wait on Mr. Banks at my restaurant on multiple occasions. He is the only person in the world I wouldn't tell that I am a Cardinals Fan. Heroes fade away, but Legends never die.
