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.
STORYThe Cardinals acquired Dave LaPoint in December 1980 in a huge trade as he was dealt by Milwaukee along with Sixto Lezcano, David Green and Lary Sorensen to St. Louis for Pete Vuckovich, Rollie Fingers and Ted Simmons. LaPoint got a save in his first big-league game with the Brewers and never another.
