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.
Dan Petry had been a member of the Detroit Tigers rotation since 1979, but the club would ship him to the California Angels for outfielder Gary Pettis before the 1988 season, the year of this Topps card. Petry would struggle to a 3-9 mark with a 4.33 ERA in 22 starts with the Angels. He had the final shutout of his career, coming June 10 against Kansas City.
