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.
Phil Niekro was the ace on a 1968 Atlanta Braves team that finished 81-81. The knuckleballer finished 14-12 with a 2.59 ERA in 37 games and also had two saves. Trivia tidbit: Cincinnati's Tony Perez hit two homers that year off Niekro and would finish with nine in his career off him, the second-most of any player. First? Johnny Bench with 11.
