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.
This 1969 card is a definite keeper as it's the first time a young Reggie Jackson made an All-Star team. Jackson led the American League that year with 123 runs and a slugging percentage of .608 -- both which would be career highs -- while smashing 47 homers and knocking in 118. Jackson was fifth in the AL MVP voting, won by Harmon Killebrew.
