Bubble Gum Autos - Luis Robert & Oneil Cruz (1/1s)

Regular price $64.95 Unit price  per 

Hand-painted collectible baseball card

Collectors can often be obsessed with autographs, but I'm rarely impressed with the designs of some of today's dedicated auto cards. They typically look like a forced design solution with white areas for players to sign. The signatures can be much more appealing when taken out of their expected composition. I prefer to crop and reposition them to create some abstraction, resulting in a new visual.

The 2022 Topps Heritage set celebrates the design of 1973... one of my personal favorites for painting bubble gum. The dark yellow backs offer a great contrast to the pink gum... and the comics are a nice nod to the Bazooka illustrators.

These are 1/1s, made from cards I pulled in packs. Stay tuned for more 1/1s on Topps Heritage and vintage Junk Wax.


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.
