ABOUT ARCHIVES PRINT SHOP
This print started out as a baseball card more than twenty years ago. Every aspect of it is designed to preserve the original look and feel of the card, from the printing pattern to the slightly worn edges. In fact, this print started by finding the actual card in our vault and then painstakingly re-mastering it with a team of designers. The authenticity extends to manufacturing; each print is made on high-quality, cotton fine art paper that measures 1/64 inches in thickness. Framed prints feature 2-inch flat wood or metallic frames with high-end, glare-resistant glass. And all prints are officially licensed by MLB and the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Nolan Ryan actually debuted with the New York Mets in 1966 but pitched in only two games and thus retained his rookie status in 1968. He was 6-9 with a 4.00 ERA that year, throwing his first complete game on May 7 in St. Louis. Jerry Koosman was 19-12 with a 2.08 ERA and 17 complete games in '68, finishing second to Johnny Bench for NL Rookie of the Year.
