1989 Topps Asterisks
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Barry Bonds' record-setting 756th home run ball sits in the Hall of Fame, marked with an asterisk. I've taken the exact shape of that asterisk and applied it to these three cards: Bonds, Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro. All three players have been excluded from the HOF to-date, as their stats have been inflated by steroid use.
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 gum stick art 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 the number produced.
- These art cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... customized with my Rosen signature.
I'm maintaining a growing checklist of the cards I've painted for your reference. It details what cards are available for purchase, and which ones are owned by collectors. Collectors can reference my complete checklist.
