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.
The pink border really makes this card stand out. The 1981 season was Burt Hooton's last big one in the majors. He went 11-6 with a 2.28 ERA in the strike-shortened season and earned his only career All-Star nod. Hooton also was the MVP of the NLCS, going 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA against Montreal. He also won the final game of the World Series against the Yankees.
