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.
There is no position designation on this 1972 card of Tony Perez but it would be the first season in which he played first base entirely instead of third. The shift didn't bother Perez at the plate as he hit .283 with 21 home runs. He had a memorable 30th birthday on May 14 with six RBIs -- he knocked in every Reds run -- in a doubleheader sweep of the Cardinals.
