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 Pittsburgh Pirates won just 83 games and missed the playoffs in 1980, the year after winning the World Series. Bill Madlock slumped along with the team, at least at his normal high standards. Madlock hit .277, nearly 30 points below his career average, with 10 home runs. Two of those dingers came on Sept. 1 off Houston's Ken Forsch.
