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.
Very simple style makes this 1970 card of Phil Niekro look classic. The knuckleballer would have a bit of a season to forget, however. A year after winning a career-high 23 games and finishing second in the Cy Young, Niekro was 12-18 with a 4.27 ERA. He allowed an NL-high 40 home runs, including four against the Padres on July 3.
