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 had his best season as a Cleveland Indian in 1984, but started the 1985 season, the year of this Topps card, with a 9-11 record with a 3.26 ERA and 15 complete games before being traded to the Minnesota Twins for Curt Wardle, Jay Bell, Jim Weaver and Rich Yett on Aug 1. Blyleven would finish with a league-leading 24 complete games and 293.2 innings pitched that season. He earned his second and final All-Star nod and finished third in the Cy Young voting for the second straight year.
