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 1987 season, in which this Topps card was printed, was Hernandez's last as a full-time player in the majors. He hit .290 with a career-high 18 home runs, received his final All-Star nod and won a 10th straight Gold Glove Award. Manager Davey Johnson named Hernandez the first team captain in Mets history in the '87 season. Hernandez did wear a hockey-style "C" on the front of his jersey but later said he regretted it.
