1991 Topps Lee Smith (Gum Stick)
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Lee Smith entered the Hall of Fame wearing a Chicago Cubs cap. It's the cap he donned for the first 8 seasons of his long 18-year career as one of the game's premier closers. However, he happened to be wearing the red cap of the rival St. Louis Cardinals in 1991, when he saved a personal best 47 games. As a life-long Cubs fan, this fact is bittersweet... like finding a stick of gum stuck to card.
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.
