Bad News Catfish
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
In the 1976 classic, little league head coach Morris Buttermaker (Walter Matthau) entices Amanda Whurlitzer (Tatum O'Neal) to be the team's star pitcher. But young Amanda has her demands... ballet lessons & french jeans. Buttermaker responds, "Who do you think you are, Catfish Hunter?"
The Bad News Bears were such a team of misfits, that the only sponsor Buttermaker could find was Chico's Bail Bonds. A stark contrast to their rival Yankees.
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.
Expected delivery time for pre-orders
Are you purchasing a pre-order? My pre-order listings are for card art that has not been painted yet. In most cases, I already have the card in stock to paint on, and will create your artwork within a few days of your purchase. Thanks for your patience.
