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.
STORYDon Baylor, i.e. Mr. Hit By Pitch, always cut an imposing figure at the plate and that's the case here before a game in 1987 at Tiger Stadium. Baylor spent two seasons in a Red Sox uniform. He had a big ALCS in '86 against the California Angels, one of his former teams and where he won the 1979 AL MVP. Baylor was traded to Minnesota in September 1987 and won a World Series ring with the Twins.
