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 and Museum or Major League Alumni Marketing.
About the time this original card was released in 1988, Ryne Sandberg was starting out the season in a slump, going hitless in his first 13 at-bats. Things would only slightly turn around for Sandberg that year, finishing the season batting .264, the fifth lowest batting average in his 15-year career with the Chicago Cubs. Perhaps there were dark forces at play – 1988 was the year Wrigley Field introduced lights for night games, and Sandberg, a big gun during the day, tended to mis-fire at night.Intellectual Property Notice:
