'87 Topps Wax Pack
Handmade labels on recycled vinyl
Pre-Order. I'll press this vinyl for you!
The wax pack wrappers are iconic relics from this era. I'm repurposing them for this conceptual art project, which combines two forms of junk wax!
An original wrapper will be applied to the A-Side of this album. The B-Side will get my Junk Wax Records project label.

About Junk Wax Records
In 1980, Fleer won a 5-year long monopolization lawsuit vs Topps, opening up the baseball card market for competition. Throughout the decade, production increased and boxes of wax packs filled the shelves of new hobby shops across America.
Before a record album is pressed onto vinyl, it first gets mastered, or cut, on wax. Junk Wax Records is a mashup of iconic cards from this era and recycled 12-inch LPs. My Junk Wax logo is inspired by the Fleer crown, as their court battle flipped this industry upside down.
