Set: 1988 Score

Card: #233 Tom Brookens

“ Ahhh, a classic (for Score), and a Tiger! Nice simple early design for a then newer company. Nice. ” -Kaline6

“ There is absolutely nothing special about the card design...but Tommy Brookens was one of my absolute favourites when I was a kid!!! ” -rmpaq5

“ The premier Score baseball set. I disliked the card numbers (I'm a set sorter) because they were too small (1989's were much better - someone must have told them about it). I liked the set more when it was released than I do now, but I still think it was a solid debut effort. ” -vrooomed

“ 88 Score is a winning design. 3 stars, per the rating in the bottom-left corner. They had colorful backs with a second photo, outstanding writing (though apparently not proofread), and full stats. The text is all small, but legible. Maybe I could gripe about the lack of team name/logo on the front (which was added in 1989), but overall it's well done. I miss Score, and their plastic bag packaging. ” -dilemma19

“ AMAZING STASH ALERT! ” -carthage44

“ Simply Score. Year One. Sounds more like a comic book title than a baseball card set. LOL. I like the simplicity of the front. Having the team name on the front would have been nice at least they put the team name and logo on the back. Back of the card is nice and tight. I has his career stats, a small bio and even a profile headshot. Nice. ” -captkirk42

“ Liked all the info on the back. Other than that, pretty dull. Killer mustache, though! ” -pistonfan

“ I will agree with anyone who has nothing nice to say about this card. ” -NJDevils

“ I really dislike most of the Score cards. This is no exception. Very plain design without much to keep interest. Why not put them team logo on front instead of the 3 stars? ” -Mitch
