1987 Spokane Indians at the mall - Monte Brooks

Outfielder Monte Brooks played in the Padres organization from 1987 to 1990. In 313 games, all in A ball, he hit .212 with 0 HR, 94 RBI and 61 RBI. He is now in his sixteenth year as head baseball coach at Masters College. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

There is not much online about "The Depot" - it was a men's and women's clothing store that originated in Lewiston, ID and had a few locations in Idaho and Washington. The chain closed down in the early 1990s. A 1985 Spokesman-Review interview with the store's merchandise buyer was quite similar to the one later given by Harvey's Fine Clothes (see Tony Lewis's card). The "Miami Vice" look was big for men here too, as was denim in a variety of colors.
