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.
STORYJohn Wathan is chipper at the batting cage in this 1990 card, but that season would be downer for the Royals' manager. Kansas City would go 75-86 -- 17 games worse than in 1989 -- and finish sixth in the AL West. It would prove to be Wathan's final full season in charge. He was fired in May 1991 with the team off to a slow start.
