August 15, 1964, Ernie Banks Day. Cellulite photo pin, 49 mm. Ernie's speech that day: "First, I want to thank God for making me an American and giving me the ability to be a major league baseball player. Next I want to thank my wife and kids and my parents for their devotion. And, of course, all the wonderful Chicago Cub fans for your warmth and acceptance in making this day possible. I will be forever grateful to the fine Cub organization, the committee, my teammates – here and beyond – and especially to Mr. (Phil) Wrigley, who has been much more than an employer. I will never forget this day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Everything I have I owe to baseball. Baseball has been a way of life for me. The game has give me an education, has helped me make friends and associations, and established me in athletics as a big leaguer. And it has helped me reach financial security. This is a day I will never forget."
