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.
Kirk Gibson's best statistical season didn't come during the Tigers' 1984 World Series run or during his NL MVP season in 1988 with the champion Los Angeles Dodgers. It was in 1985, the year of this Topps card. The Tigers didn't return to the playoffs but Gibson hit .287 with 29 homers and 97 RBIs, the latter two career-bests, with 30 steals.
