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 Cubs went from winning the NL East title to a 77-win team in 1985, but starting pitcher Steve Trout had another strong season in '85, the year this Topps card was printed. "Rainbow" Trout had a 3.39 ERA, the best of his career to that point, and won nine games while pitching 140.2 innings. Trout wouldn't win at least nine games the rest of his career.
