Album cover wall art

This album cover is a conceptual artwork, made as a complimentary display piece for my Royals Junk Wax Records album. However, I didn't make them both available together at the time of my record release. 

The 1986 Topps Traded #50T is a truly iconic image. This photo session of Bo Jackson was also used by Donruss for their '86 Rookies, along with Sportflics for the '87 base set. I've used an original, authentic card, and layered it underneath painted plexiglass to make this wall hanging. My musical inspiration was Lorde's 2013 hit single, Royals. Lorde herself, was inspired by George Brett.

  • Plexi bonded onto a 12" x 12" x 1.5" wooden panel frame
  • Original #50T layered inside
  • Ready to hang, with built-in hardware

But every song's like
Gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room
We don't care
We're driving Cadillacs in our dreams

But everybody's like
Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care
We aren't caught up in your love affair

And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz

Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And baby, I'll rule (I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule)
Let me live that fantasy
