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.
Would the Dodgers do the Bob Welch trade over again? He was a standout pitcher since debuting in 1978 but the team dealt him in a three-way trade in December 1987 that saw Welch land in Oakland. He would be one of the AL's top pitchers the next three seasons, including winning the 1990 Cy Young Award and career-high 27 games.
