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.
The Detroit Tigers returned to the playoffs for the first time since 1968 when manager Billy Martin led the club to an 86-70 record in 1972, a half game ahead of Boston. Because of a schedule quirk due to the players' strike the Tigers played one more game than the Red Sox, which clearly was pretty important as Boston finished 85-70. Detroit lost in the ALCS to Oakland.
