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 Dodgers acquired Dusty Baker in a trade with Atlanta in November 1975. Hank Aaron had this once about him: "Dusty Baker has more potential than any outfielder I've seen in all my seasons with the Braves." Some thought Baker was the next Aaron, and he became a force with the Dodgers. Baker won his first Silver Slugger Award in 1980, the year of this card.
