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.
STORYJohn Wathan's best season as the Kansas City Royals' manager came in 1989, the year of this card. He led the club to a 92-70 record, but it missed out on the playoffs by finishing seven games behind Oakland in the AL West. Those 92 wins would have been enough to win the AL East.
