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.
This card is valuable as it's the first of Luis Tiant with the Minnesota Twins. After leading the NL with 20 losses in 1969 for the Indians, he and Stan Williams were traded to Minnesota for Dean Chance, Bob Miller, Ted Uhlaender and Graig Nettles. Tiant was limited to 18 games in '70 because of a fractured shoulder.
