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 is one of the last Topps cards in print of Fergie Jenkins. The 40-year-old future Hall of Famer closed out his 19-year career in 1983 with the Cubs with a 6-9 record and 4.00 ERA. His 49th and final career shutout came June 12 against the Cardinals. The last player to homer off Jenkins? The Phillies' Joe Lefebvre, the 484th allowed overall by Jenkins.
