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.
STORYIt's not too often you will see a catcher wear glasses, but Joe Nolan did even with the mask on. Nolan debuted with the Mets in 1972 at age 21 and pretty much was a reserve at every stop. He finally landed in Baltimore on the eve of the 1982 season in a trade with Cincinnati and was the primary backup behind Rick Dempsey in 1982-83.
