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.
It's too bad the strike shortened the 1981 season or Bobby Grich might have put up easily the best numbers of his career. As it was, he led the AL with 22 homers (four-way tie) and a .543 slugging percentage. Grich followed it up with his last All-Star appearance in '82, batting .261 with 19 homers and 65 RBIs.
