Hand-painted collectible baseball card
This card is one of my earliest bubble gum artworks.
I started collecting baseball cards when I was 8 years old, in the summer of 1985. So, naturally the '85 Topps set brings back fond memories of opening wax packs and chewing bubble gum. One of my favorite design elements is the Trivia Question graphic on the back.
Did you know that Harold Baines had his No. 3 retired by the White Sox on Aug. 20, 1989. He played more MLB games after the White Sox retired his number (1,432) than he did before (1,398)!
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

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.
