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.
STORYThe year 1982, when this Topps card was printed, would prove to be the final full season for Keith Hernandez in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform -- the team he debuted with in 1974 and won an NL MVP award with in 1979. Hernandez's streak of three consecutive seasons hitting at least .300 ended in 1982, but he led the league in intentional walks. The Cards beat the Brewers in seven games in the Fall Classic in Hernandez's first postseason. He had eight RBIs in the series.
