A Guest Artist Original
A baseball card mirror celebrating the Topps set and traded series from 1986.
As of 2020, 36 Hall of Fame players are in these sets and all of them are featured here on this frame. Sadly, two of them have died this past year, Tom Seaver and Phil Niekro.
The 1986 Topps set featured colorful, full frame photos. It remains easily recognizable because the team's name is set in a black background.
Constructed in Fort Collins, Colorado
Each 28" diameter frame is made from 3/4" thick Baltic birch plywood (stained and lacquered), and consists of approximately 60 genuine baseball cards.
In an effort to keep the cards "cleanable", I have applied 4 coats of lacquer, while retaining their original sheen. The mirror itself is 11 1/2" diameter and 1/8" thick. It ships ready to hang, with a metal keyhole hanger in the back.
About Matthew Lee Rosen's Guest Artist Shops
Topps Project 2020 has inspired a growing number of hobbyists to create their own card art. To provide them with support, I'm inviting artists to build their own guest shop! I lend my expertise to mentor and guide them along the way... my ultimate vision is to curate a mini-marketplace for card-inspired artwork.
