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.
STORYMike Young wasn't the most memorable Oriole from the 1980s, but he had a memorable 1985 season, the year of this card. He was the team's third-best hitter that year behind Hall of Famers Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken. Young set nearly every career-high that year, batting .273 with 28 homers and 81 RBIs in 139 games. He had 11 homers and 32 RBIs in August alone.
