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.
STORYThe 1981 strike-shortened season was a very memorable one for Orioles reliever Sammy Stewart. He won the American League ERA title at 2.32, edging Oakland's Steve McCatty by the thinnest possible margin. It didn't come without controversy. Back then the leagues rounded off ERAs to the nearest full inning, but that would have had McCatty the winner, so the rule was changed.
