Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Dwight Gooden debuted in April of '84... at the young age of 19. He would finish the season with a record-breaking 246 strikeouts. That spring, adoring Mets fans began calling him Dr. K, which turned into "Doc" for short. By mid-summer, Gooden became the youngest player to appear in an All-Star game... and in the fall he was named Rookie of the Year.
While Topps regularly issued Record Breaker cards throughout the junk wax era, I've always found the yellow starburst graphic on the '85 Topps to be the most iconic.
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.
