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.
STORYJohn Wathan spent his entire 10-year playing career with the Royals, the team that drafted him with the No. 4 overall pick in the 1971 amateur draft. The 1985 season would be Wathan's last and he played in only 60 games. He did win his only World Series ring, however. Wathan was 0-for-1 in the Fall Classic against St. Louis.
