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 card is pretty rare because of how little time Luis Tiant spent with the California Angels. He started the 1982 season in the Mexican League but convinced the Halos to give him a shot and they signed him in August. Tiant went 2-2 with a 5.76 ERA in six games and would not pitch again in the majors.
