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.
STORYCal Ripken Jr. was all about breaking and setting records. This was a special "record breaker" Topps card that came in the 1990 set, paying tribute to Ripken's record of eight-straight 20-home run seasons. It was the most by any shortstop in baseball history. He brought stability, size and power to the shortstop position unlike anyone before.
