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.
Kirk Gibson wasn't a regular yet with the Detroit Tigers in 1982 at age 25. The former football star at Michigan State -- he was drafted by the NFL's Cardinals -- played in 69 games, largely as a backup center fielder. He hit .278 with eight homers and 35 RBIs. He'd be a lineup regular going forward.
