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.
If Earl Weaver looks rather young in this 1970 card, it's because he would only turn 40 that season. Weaver certainly knew what he was doing. He led the Orioles to 109 wins and the AL pennant in 1969 and then 108 wins and a five-game win over the Reds in the World Series in 1970. It would be Weaver's only championship.
