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.
STORYSouthpaw John Martin prepares to bring the heat in this 1983 card from spring training. Martin debuted in the majors with St. Louis in 1980 and the '83 season would be his last there. He started the year 3-1 with a 3.53 ERA but was sold by the team to Detroit in early August. Martin would pitch in 15 games for the Tigers and then not again in the big leagues.
