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' mustache was well known to Tigers fans by 1985, the year of this Topps card. You had to be there, it was a 1980s thing. With Howard Johnson no longer around to platoon at third base with, Brookens played a career-high 156 games in '85 -- the most of any Tiger -- and hit .237 with seven homers and 37 RBIs.
