The 80's sports poster landscape was dominated by the Costacos Brothers, who filled bedroom walls across America with their athlete persona. In 1988, with the Oakland A's becoming a powerhouse, they released Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire as the Bash Brothers. The two sluggers were outfitted to look like John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd... sitting on a squad car with giant over-sized bats.
I've re-imagined this iconic poster as a vintage record label, spinning Soul Man. The actual record used is a completely random album. What songs are on it? Spin it and find out!
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.
