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.
The Cubs took some heat when they traded ace and future Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins to Texas in 1973 for Bill Madlock. However, Madlock was terrific in his short tenure in Chicago. He won his first batting title in 1975, hitting .354 at age 24 and earning his first All-Star nod. In '74, his first year in Chicago, Madlock was third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting.
