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.
STORYAt 6-foot, 210 pounds, Red Sox catcher Rich Gedman never was very fleet of foot, so hitting the ball on the ground, as in this 1983 card, usually wasn't a good idea. Gedman still wasn't a full-timer in '83 for Boston, splitting time with Gary Allenson. That would change the following season.
