Rickey Henderson is baseball's all-time leader in Steals with 1,406 (and Runs too with 2,295). He also happens to be the career leader in times Caught Stealing (335); a feat similar to Brett Favre leading the NFL in total interceptions thrown.
In 1990, Rickey was named the league MVP for the only time in his 25-year career... leading the A's to their 3rd consecutive World Series. That summer, "Been Caught Stealing," the top single from Jane's Addiction's Ritual de lo Habitual album, spent four weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Modern Rock chart.
This album design was inspired by the red-themed 1990 Donruss (a color symbolism for a negative outcome) with its paint-splattered effect.
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.
