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.
STORYMike Schmidt was already bound for Cooperstown. He had hit 500 home runs and been named to more than a decade's worth of NL All-Star teams. Schmidt was coming off his last season ever hitting more than 30 home runs and receiving MVP votes when this card was originally released. As a print, you can get a close-up view of the fight that Schmitty still had in him toward the end of his career.
