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.
Sparky leans back on this originally-released 1990 Topps card. That year after one particularly bad loss to the Twins, Sparky said "the only reason I'm coming out here tomorrow is the schedule says I have to." The '90s would turn out to be re-building decade for the franchise as loyal fans would have to wait until 2006 to return to the post-season.
