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.
Bert Blyleven has the distinction of being one of the few big leaguers ever to be born in the Netherlands. His birth name was Rik Aalbert Blijleven. In 1974, the year of this card, Blyleven lost 17 games for the third straight season but also won 17 with a 2.66 ERA at age 23. "I know I've got a lock on the Dutch Hall of Fame," he once said.Intellectual Property Notice: © 2013 All Rights Reserved. Topps is a registered trademark of The Topps Company, Inc.
