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.
STORYThis crisp 1988 card shows the form that made Joe Sambito one of the best relievers in the National League for six seasons in Houston, but injuries sidetracked his career. He spent the final two seasons of his career in a Red Sox uniform and wasn't nearly as effective. Sambito wouldn't pitch again after 1987.
