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.
The 1984 season was one of the best in Detroit Tigers history as they started 35-5 and won the World Series. Kirk Gibson was a huge part of that as he settled in as the Tigers' full-time right fielder. He hit .282 with 27 home runs, 91 RBIs and 29 stolen bases to finish sixth in the AL MVP voting. Gibson had one of the epic homers in Tigers history in the eighth inning of the clinching Game 5 of the World Series, a three-run shot of Padres closer Goose Gossage. Gibson hit .333 with two homers, seven RBIs and three steals in the Fall Classic, but teammate Alan Trammell was named World Series MVP.
