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.
STORYWhat color other than Royal blue would Kansas City's Bud Black sign his card with, as shown in this 1984 shot from Tiger Stadium? Black had a career year in '84 with a 17-12 record (career-high in wins) and 3.12 ERA. He led the American League in WHIP. Black did get roughed up in his lone ALCS start, allowing four runs in five innings of a loss to Detroit.
