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.
The original card was issued in early 1985, and fortunes would change for the Detroit Tigers that year. The team followed up its legendary 1984 World Champion season by going 84 and 77, finishing in third place. Sparky once had a sign in his office that read "every 24 hours the world turns over on someone who was sitting on top of it." How true.
