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.
STORYBig Kevin Mitchell kicks up a mini-tsunami of dirt as he scores on a close play against the Montreal Expos at Shea Stadium in this Topps card printed in 1987. Mitchell didn't spend that year in Queens. He was traded by the Mets in December 1986 along with two other players to San Diego for Kevin McReynolds and Gene Walter. Mitchell had 12 homers and 43 RBIs for the World Series champion Mets in '86 as a reserve.
