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.
Tom Brookens entered spring training in 1989 as a member of the Detroit Tigers, the year of this Topps card, but was traded on March 23 to the New York Yankees for Charles Hudson. Brookens finished his 10-season Tigers career with a .246 average, 66 homers and 397 RBIs in 1,206 games, and was a very good defensive player. He would play '99 with the Yankees and 1990 with Cleveland before retiring.
