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.
The Red Sox took a chance on what looked like perhaps a washed-up Luis Tiant by signing him in May 1971 after he had been released by the Twins and Braves. It didn't look like a good decision that year as Tiant went 1-7 with Boston. But he bounced back in big way by leading the AL with a 1.91 ERA in 1972 in being named AL Comeback Player of the Year and then winning 20 games in '73.
