1990 Topps Ken Caminiti (Asterisk)
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
A year after retiring, Astros slugger Ken Caminiti was the feature of a Sports Illustrated cover story. During the interview, Caminiti admitted to using steroids during his 1996 MVP season, and for several seasons afterwards. His stats were inflated like his body... and the numbers should come with an asterisk.
Camaniti died of a cocaine and heroin drug overdose on October 10, 2004.
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 matching Rosen signature label.
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.
