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.
It's hard to recognize Rollie Fingers without the handlebar mustache, but he was only 23 in 1970, the year of this card. The A's still weren't sure what Fingers was yet as he started 19 games and relieved in 26 others. He finished 7-9 with a 3.65 ERA and two saves. Fingers also hit his first big-league homer on Sept. 16 off Milwaukee's John Gelnar.
