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.
STORYHoward Johnson was a valuable member of the World Series champion Mets in 1986, as shown in this card, as he warms up before a game at Shea Stadium. The team had acquired him via trade from Detroit in December 1984. The versatile Johnson played in 45 games at third in '86 for New York and 34 at shortstop. Johnson played in two games in the NLCS and two in the World Series, largely as a pinch-hitter.
