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.
STORYGary Matthews was essentially relegated to a pinch-hitting role in 1987, the year this Topps card was released. He got 42 at-bats in 44 games with the Cubs and hit .262 with no home runs. The Cubs traded the 36-year-old to the Seattle Mariners for a minor-league player to be named in July. Matthews retired after the '87 season.
