Chrome #2 - Nike Jr.
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Ken Griffey Jr finally got his own signature Nike shoe in 1996. The Air Griffey Max 1 became one of the most successful cross-trainers in history. However, if I was on the design team back then... I would've branded it differently. The rotated swoosh forms the J in Jr., and also represents the plentiful rain drops in Seattle.
2017 Topps All-Rookie Cup #16 Ken Griffey Jr. - C2
This patterned bubble gum is the second I've painted on Topps Chrome. Hence, it's number C2 of a planned on-going Chrome series. The card is paired with my custom chrome-colored signature Ultra Pro.
About my collector cards
After purchasing some old wax packs to study the size and texture of gum sticks, I developed my own paint techniques in order to replicate it. Now, I hand-paint gum stick art directly onto vintage baseball cards to create small collectibles.
Here's what you'll receive with this order
- My original hand-painted gum onto a baseball card.
- Each collector card is paint-marked with the number produced.
- These art cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... customized with my matching Rosen signature label.
I'm maintaining a growing checklist of the cards I've painted for your reference. It details what cards are available for purchase, and which ones are owned by collectors. Collectors can reference my complete checklist.
