The Manning brothers have always been a tight knit group, so it came as no surprise when the first incarnation of Take 2 Authentics was created 18 years ago by Robert, Craig, and Chris Manning.  As with any new business the first years of Take 2 Authentics were rough.  The framing and memorabilia business isn’t too welcoming of newcomers.  Luckily, through hard work and tough times that only a band of brothers could cope with business began to pick up.  Customers were amazed with the quality and care that went into their pieces.  It’s often said that “word of mouth” is the best form of advertising, and once the brothers had a handful of very satisfied customers things began to take off.  Slowly but surely more and more people began to realize the caliber of product the Manning brothers were capable of.

Through the pursuit of excellence in their craft and customer service, the brothers had built a large and loyal base of repeat customers.  It didn’t take long for the local professional sports teams to notice.  The Detroit Tigers decided that the best people to frame their memorabilia with would be the locally based Manning brothers.  With the Tigers and some other large companies doing regular business the brothers decided it was time to expand.  They invested a lot of capital in order to bring in new talent and upgrade their equipment.  With the capability to create more product, Take 2 Authentics was able to foster new and larger business relationships all across the United States.

Presently, Take 2 Authentics continues their framing relationship with the Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons.  Every home game played by the Pistons and Red Wings you can find the Manning brothers running a silent auction where they sell a wide variety of Michigan sports memorabilia to benefit local charities.  Custom framing and customer service that exceeds individual’s expectations remains the foundation and passion of Take 2 Authentics.  The brothers will only use state of the art equipment for all framed pieces, including laser guided mat board cutting systems and top of the line plaque engraving equipment.  Thanks to technology and skill Take 2 Authentics produces pieces that are unbelievably intricate and beautiful.
