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.
STORYHoward Johnson's value to the Mets was that he could play both third base and shortstop and had pop from both sides of the plate as he shows here stroking a double to left-center field at Shea Stadium. Ho-Jo played in a career-high 157 games for New York in 1987, the year of this card. He hit 36 bombs, a career-high at the time and fifth in the National League.
