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.
This card was released in 1984 when Sandberg formed one half of the Cubs “daily double” with Bob Dernier. The pair combined to drive the league-leading Chicago Cubs offense to score 762 runs, or 4.7 runs per game. But 1984 is best known for “the Sandberg Game”, where Ryne hit two homeruns off of Cardinals pitcher Bruce Sutter – once to send the game to extra innings in the bottom of the ninth, and again in the bottom of the tenth to tie the game before a Cubs victory in the eleventh. Sandberg finished the game 5 for 6 with 7 RBI, 2 runs scored, and 2 homeruns. Not bad.
