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.
It's rather fitting this 1980 card of Jim Sundberg is him in his catching gear instead of the plate because he was definitely known for his defense and not his bat. Sundberg played a career-high 151 games in '80 and had a very good offensive year for him, batting .273 with 10 homers. He won a fifth straight Gold Glove.
