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.
Johnny Bench began his trek to baseball immortality by winning the 1968 NL Rookie of the Year Award, hitting .275 with 15 home runs and 82 RBIs. Tompkins was acquired by Cincinnati from Oakland in October 1967 and would never pitch for the Reds. Tompkins pitched in five games in 1965 for Kansas City and then 35 more in 1971 with the Cubs for his only big-league experience.
