1985 Topps Production Line
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
The 1985 Topps set led into the big baseball card boom of the late 80's and early 90's. Topps began ramping up production to hold off competition from Fleer and Donruss. The set was loaded with a great rookie class: McGwire, Clemens, Carter, Davis, Puckett, Hershiser, Gooden etc., and featured some now iconic hobby images for many of the game's stars.
I've designed a repeating pattern based on the '85 layout to represent the production line of this set. Painted with a full slab of bubble gum texture.
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 bubble gum 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 it's edition number.
- These art cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... customized with my matching Rosen signature label.
- I do not sign these cards by request. However, your package will include bonus items personally autographed by me.
Expected delivery time for pre-orders
Are you purchasing a pre-order? My pre-order listings are for card art that has not been painted yet. In most cases, I already have the card in stock to paint on, and will create your artwork within a few days of your purchase. Thanks for your patience.
