Bubble Burst (1992 Topps Micro)
Original baseball card art
In 1992, after 40 years of creating wax packs, Topps (makers of Bazooka) stopped including gum and switched to a white card stock with a plastic wrapper. Ironically, this is when the baseball card bubble began to burst.
The overproduction of the card boom and resulting bubble burst is exhibited here with the use of over 432 Topps micro cards from 1992... layered underneath spray-painted plexiglass.
More about my 34" diamond baseball card artworks
- My paintings are done on plywood as homage to the game's wooden bats, and shaped like diamonds... a reference to the infield.
- Each diamond is made from a 24" plywood square (1/2" thick), which measures 34" x 34" when hung on a wall.
- Some of my artworks also incorporate the use of spray-painted plexiglass.
- Each painting ships ready to hang, with hardware already installed.
- A printed and signed description of the artwork will be attached to the back prior to shipping.
- All pieces are original artwork by yours truly, Matthew Lee Rosen.
