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.
STORYSteve Balboni shows off his high-and-tight batting stance in this 1985 card from a Royals game at Yankee Stadium -- the yellow accent really makes the blue stand out. Balboni was a big part of that Royals' championship team that year, leading the team with 36 homers and knocking in 88. It was often all or nothing for Balboni as he led the AL with 166 strikeouts.
