1/1 - Steal this Record ('85 Topps Rickey Henderson)
Handmade labels on recycled vinyl
Rickey Henderson's '85 Topps is among my favorites... a classic design, easily identifiable with one quick glance. It was also printed on a 5x7 Jumbo format, which provides a great example of the overproduction from the Junk Wax era.
The A-side of the album is patterned with the back of Rickey's card #115 in green and gold-layered vinyl. The pattern conveys the mass production. The B-side is made with his Jumbo.
Steal This Record was the fourth studio album by punk rock band The Suicide Machines... a perfect musical reference for the Man of Steal. 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.
