Chrome #1 - McGwire Asterisk
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Roger Maris gets an asterisk next to his record breaking 61 HR season, because it occurred over the course of a 162-game schedule (instead of Ruth's 154). So, why the heck doesn't McGwire's record get the same treatment? Big Mac publicly admitted that steroids helped him stay on the field in 1998, when he hit 70 HRs.
2017 Topps All-Rookie Cup #4 Mark McGwire - C1
This Asterisk bubble gum is the first I've painted on Topps Chrome. Hence, it's numbered C1... the initial card of a planned on-going Chrome series. The card is paired with my custom chrome-colored signature Ultra Pro.
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 gum stick art 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 the number produced.
- These art cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... customized with my matching Rosen signature label.
I'm maintaining a growing checklist of the cards I've painted for your reference. It details what cards are available for purchase, and which ones are owned by collectors. Collectors can reference my complete checklist.
