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.
STORYOrioles outfielder Dan Ford punches a single into right field in this 1983 Topps card taken from a game at Yankee Stadium. Ford once was a top prospect in the majors, the No. 18 overall pick by Oakland in 1970. He would be traded to Minnesota in 1974 and then to the Angels in 1978. They sent him to Baltimore in January 1982 in a package for Doug DeCinces. Ford's time as a semi-regular would be up after the '83 season. At least Ford won a World Series ring that year with the Birds.
