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.
Kirk Gibson was arguably the most popular Detroit Tiger by 1987, the year of this Topps card, but it would prove to be the end of his first stint with the team. Gibson hit .277 with 24 homers and 79 RBIs while stealing 26 bases for Detroit in '87. He also was one of the few Tigers to hit in the ALCS loss to Minnesota, batting .286 with a homer and four RBIs.
