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 original card behind this print was issued in 1984, the year of Bless You Boys, the roar of '84, a 35 and 5 start, and of course a World Series Championship. It also meant taking the team to a franchise-record 104 wins and becoming the first manager ever to win a World Series in both leagues. Not bad for a manager once quoted as saying "I only had a high school education and believe me, I had to cheat to get that."
