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.
STORYIn the winter of 1984, outfielder Bob Dernier was traded along with Gary Matthews to the Chicago Cubs from Philadelphia. As the Cubs leadoff hitter in '84, the year of this Topps card, Dernier sparked Chicago to the NL East title by playing a career-high 143 games and hitting .278 with a career-high 45 steals. He hit .235 with two steals in the NLCS loss to San Diego.
