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.
Vida Blue wanted a sizable raise after his 1971 MVP and Cy Young season, so he staged a lengthy holdout into the 1972 season. He wouldn't debut until late-May, getting a raise of nearly $50,000, and was 6-10 with a 3.75 ERA in 25 games. It would be the only year between 1971-1980 that he didn't win at least 14 games.
