MEARS Museum to Host Ernie Banks on Saturday, June 1st, 2013

The MEARS Museum is proud to announce the in person visit of Chicago Cubs legend Ernie Banks at our South Milwaukee, WI location from 12:00-3:00 PM. In a very rare Wisconsin appearance, Ernie Banks is coming to Milwaukee for his first stop in over 25 years.

At 82 years of age, Mr. Banks is limiting his appearances, but still loves to meet his fans. Located at 1234 Manitoba Ave., South Milwaukee, the MEARS museum is a 15,000 square foot state of the art facility where fans can comfortably mingle with Mr. Cub. Ernie will be signing autographs, posing for pictures, and answering questions. He does not rush and gives each fan his undivided attention.

There will be free refreshments and parking. The MEARS Museum is located 8 minutes from the airport, 18 minutes from downtown Milwaukee, and 90 minutes from downtown Chicago.

Fans can have their pictures taken with Mr. Banks at no extra charge with paid autograph ticket. Prices are:

Ticket: Your Flat to 11×14 or Baseball – $89
Ticket: Your Large Flat or Equipment – $99
Ticket: Your Jersey or Bat – $139
Ticket: All Inscriptions – $39 each

Many collectors will also have a first look at the artifacts displayed at the MEARS Museum. The floor plan emphasizes the history and evolution of the baseball jersey. Styles, materials, tagging, and color schemes are presented via the custom display cases which are arranged by team. The artifact displays are complimented with an array of stadium seats and various other items of memorabilia. Many of the items originate from the Dave Grob working library and are used to support the MEARS Evaluation division, a living, breathing reference library.

Both the staff of MEARS and Ernie Banks look forward to seeing you at our event. Questions can be directed to our home office at (414) 828-9990 or email info@mearsonlineauctions.com
