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.
STORYAfter losing in the 1987 American League Championship Series, the Detroit Tigers started a string of 18 straight seasons missing the playoffs in 1988 with an 88-74 mark. However, it was another strong season for star shortstop Alan Trammell, as shown in this '88 Topps card. He hit .311 with 15 homers (the most he would have in a season the rest of his career) and 69 RBIs. Trammell would earn his second straight All-Star spot and also win a second consecutive Silver Slugger Award.
