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.
After a breakout 1980 season that saw Tom Brookens set a handful of offensive career-highs, the Detroit Tigers' third baseman was limited to 71 games in the 1981 strike-shortened season, the year this Topps card was printed. His average dropped to .243 and his homers down to four. The Tigers missed the playoffs yet again.
