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.
Chet Lemon arrived in Detroit via trade for the 1982 season, and his worst year to date came in 1986, the year of this Topps card. The center fielder played in 126 games and hit just 12 homers and knocked in 53 while batting .251. It looked like Lemon's career was on the down slope at age 31, but he bounced back the following year.
