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.
STORYGlenn Hoffman had high hopes in spring training 1987, when this Topps card was printed. However, he rarely left the bench as Spike Owen's backup at shortstop. Hoffman played in just 21 games before being traded to the Dodgers in August. Hoffman would later became a coach in that organization, including a brief stint in as L.A.'s interim manager in 1998.
