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. will be known for many things: the streak, 3,000 hits, the '83 World Series, 400 homers, being a Hall of Famer and much more. He should also be noted as one of the best defensive players at shortstop and third base. In 1990, the same year this card was originally produced by Topps, Ripken turned in the best fielding percentage for a shortstop in history: .996.
