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.
STORYPuerto Rican Benigno (Felix) Ayala was acquired by the Baltimore Orioles from St. Louis in January 1979 for Mike Dimmel. That trade was definitely a win for the Birds as Dimmel would get a total of three at-bats as a Cardinal and not play again. Ayala was a solid role player on the Orioles until 1984.
