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.
STORYAndre Dawson had placed second in NL MVP voting on two separate occasions as a Montreal Expo. But in his first year as a Chicago Cub, The Hawk managed to finally claim the award as his own. Dawson exploded for 49 homers and 137 RBIs, which both led the Majors. This card from the 1988 Topps set shows Dawson following through on his swing, which enforces his reputation as a slugger.
