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.
STORYThis 1987 card was the first in which Tigers third baseman Tom Brookens was bespectacled. But it happens to the best of us at age 33 as Brookens was that year. He played in 143 games in '87, 45 more than the previous season, and hit .241 with a career-high 13 home runs and 59 RBIs (No. 2 in his career). He was an ugly 0-for-13 in the ALCS loss to the Twins.
