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.
Dick Ruthven is framed perfectly in this 1983 card. Ruthven, who was the No. 2 starter on the 1980 world champion Phillies, started '83 at 1-3 with a 5.61 ERA and was traded in May to the Cubs for Willie Hernandez. Ruthven would pitch in Chicago through 1986 before retiring.
