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.
Future Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven's first full season in his second stint with the Minnesota Twins was in 1986, the year of this Topps card, after being acquired in August 1985 from Cleveland. Blyleven was 17-14 in '86 for Minnesota with a 4.01 ERA. He led the American League by pitching 271.2 innings and also allowed an AL-worst 50 home runs, a career high.
