1981 Topps Tom Brookens

The front: Simple batting cage shot at what I think is Yankee Stadium.

The back: Ike Brookens pitched in the Senators, Royals, Cardinals and Tigers chains from 1967 to 1977. Tim Brookens played in the Rangers and Tigers organizations from 1975 to 1978, topping out at Double A.
The player: Tom Brookens was a utility infielder for the Tigers from 1979 to 1988, and ended his career with a year each for the Yankees and Indians. In 1,336 major league games he hit .246 with 71 HR and 431 RBI.

The man: Brookens was a longtime minor league manager and major league coach in the Tigers organization. He is now retired.

My collection: I have 43 of his cards, from 1980 to 1991. I would be interested in trading for 1989 Score Yankees #21.
