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.
STORYThe 1986 Mets were one of the best teams in franchise history and memorably beat the Boston Red Sox in the World Series. Wally Backman was the team's starting second baseman that year and usually hit second as a switch-hitter behind Lenny Dykstra. Backman hit .320, his best full season average in the majors.
