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 1980 shot of the Angels' Frank Tanana is interesting because it was Tanana's first full season back off shoulder surgery and when he reinvented himself from a fireballer to a slow-tossing curveballer. Tanana was 11-12 with a 4.15 ERA in 32 games that year with 113 strikeouts. By comparison, he had 269 strikeouts in 1975 in 34 games.
