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.
STORYBefore he became one of the most dominant closers in baseball history, Dennis Eckersley was a very good starting pitcher. He was acquired by the Cubs in May 1984 from Boston (for Bill Buckner) and helped the team to the NL East title. In 1985, the year this Topps card was printed, Eckersley was 11-7 with a 3.08 ERA. His strikeouts-to-walks ratio of 6.16 was the best in the National League.
