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.
STORYLonnie Smith had reason to smile as in this 1987 card because he won a second career World Series ring in his three seasons as a Kansas City Royal. Smith was relegated to a backup outfielder or designated hitter role in '87 and hit .251 with nine steals -- Smith had stolen 66 bases for the Royals combined the previous two years.
