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.
Dodgers shortstop Bill Russell looks good with the bat in his hands in this 1980 card. However, Russell wasn't known as a bat guy -- he never hit .300 in 18 years -- but solid with the glove. Russell hit one point higher than his career mark in '80 at .264 and made his third and final All-Star team.
