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 Minnesota Twins couldn't repeat as World Series champions in 1988, the year of this Topps card, finishing 13 games behind Oakland in the AL West. The season was a struggle for future Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven as he lost an AL-worst 17 games -- with 10 wins -- and had a career-worst 5.43 ERA. It was Blyleven's final season in Minnesota.
