1/1 - '87 Fleer Box Cut
Handmade labels on recycled vinyl
Fleer printed a set of cards on the bottoms of their wax pack retail boxes. In 1987, one box featured a great combo of C-15 Mike Schmidt and C-4 Dwight Gooden. I've made a record label out of it... combining two forms of junk wax!
The original box bottom is applied to the A-Side of this album. The B-Side has my Junk Wax Records project label.
About Junk Wax Records
In 1980, Fleer won a 5-year long monopolization lawsuit vs Topps, opening up the baseball card market for competition. Throughout the decade, production increased and boxes of wax packs filled the shelves of new hobby shops across America.
Before a record album is pressed onto vinyl, it first gets mastered, or cut, on wax. Junk Wax Records is a mashup of iconic cards from this era and recycled 12-inch LPs. My Junk Wax logo is inspired by the Fleer crown, as their court battle flipped this industry upside down.
