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.
STORYWilliam Hayward Wilson, better known as Mookie, stares intently at the Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher in a game during the 1989 season, the year of this Topps card. Wilson would play 80 games with the Mets, his 10th year in Queens, before the popular player was traded on Aug. 1 to Toronto for pitcher Jeff Musselman and minor-leaguer Mike Brady. Wilson stole 327 bases in his 10 seasons with the Mets.
