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.
STORYIt's almost hard to remember that players played with such big, cumbersome glasses back in the day as shown in this 1986 shot of Birds outfielder Dan Ford. He spent 11 seasons in the majors, his final four with Baltimore, where he won his only World Series ring. Ford retired after being released by the Orioles in January 1986.
