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.
Dennis Eckersley's dominant run as Oakland's closer really began in 1988. Eckersley made his first All-Star team with the Athletics and finished 4-2 with a 2.35 ERA and an AL-leading 45 saves -- from a guy who had 19 career saves entering the year. Eckersley finished a distant second to Minnesota's Frank Viola for the Cy Young Award.
