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.
STORYBill Buckner had a very pronounced weight-back stance in his 22-year career and he helped him hit .289 and win a batting title. However, he almost had to get out of Boston after his misplay lost Game 6 of the World Series in 1986 and made him Public Enemy No. 1 in Beantown. The Sox would release him in July 1987, the year of this card, and he signed on with the Angels. Buckner would return to Boston for 22 games in his final season, 1990.
