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 was pushed aside largely as the Tigers' third baseman in 1986, the year of this Topps card, for Darnell Coles. After playing in a career-best 156 games the year before Brookens was limited to 98 as Coles' backup in '86. Brookens did hit a solid .270, his best average since 1980. But he was more known for his glove.
