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.
Howard Johnson was a valuable piece of the Detroit Tigers in 1984. As part of a platoon at third base, the switch-hitter batted .248 with 12 home runs and 50 RBIs as Detroit won the World Series. However, Johnson got just a single playoff at-bat and the Tigers dealt him before the 1985 season, the year of this Topps card, to the Mets for pitcher Walt Terrell. Ho-Jo would spend the rest of his career in the National League.
