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.
At age 22, Dan Petry had emerged as the No. 3 starter on the Detroit Tigers in 1981, the year of this Topps card. Petry pitched 141.0 innings that year and was 10-9 with a career-best 3.00 ERA along with seven complete games and two shutouts. Petry's toughest loss had to be Sept. 23 in Baltimore. He and Dennis Martinez were locked in a scoreless duel until Jim Dwyer homered to lead off the bottom of the ninth off Petry.
