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.
Chet Lemon was drafted in the first round of the 1972 draft and traded to the Chicago White Sox in 1975. He made his major-league debut with Chicago in 1975 at age 20 and the two-time All-Star was traded to Detroit in November 1981 for Steve Kemp. In 1983, the year of this Topps card, Lemon hit .255 in 491 at-bats with a career-high 24 home runs for Detroit.
