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 1972 Cleveland Indians had a very good third baseman in place in Graig Nettles, so the team used youngster Buddy Bell in right field. Bell, a 16th-round draft pick in 1969, had a solid rookie campaign, hitting .255 with nine homers. That first dinger was April 22 off Baltimore's Eddie Watt.
