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.
On the right is a shot of Sparky Anderson in 1978, his final season managing the Reds. He spent nine years there, winning four pennants and World Series titles in 1976-77. The left shot is truly a rarity as Anderson played just one season in the majors, 1959 with the Phillies. He hit .218 in 477 at-bats.Intellectual Property Notice: © 2013 All Rights Reserved.
