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.
STORYHonoring Ripken's play from the season before, this was originally printed in 1987. Matching the same wood panel design as the base set from that year, Ripken appears to be shedding his boyish blook and maturing. By this point he as already a six-year veteran and established name. Notice though that early on he goes by Cal Ripken on his cards, and not Cal Ripken Jr.
