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.
Bert Blyleven wouldn't be a Minnesota Twin in the 1989 season, the year of this Topps card. He was traded in November 1988 to the California Angels for Mike Cook and Paul Sorrento. Blyleven spent 11 combined seasons in Minnesota over two stints and was 149-138 with a 3.28 ERA and a whopping 141 complete games. He would have one of his best seasons in 1989 at age 38 with the Angels, going 17-5 with a 2.73 ERA. Blyleven was fourth in the AL Cy Young voting.
