Eject Manfred! 2*21
Hand-painted collectible art card
A commentary on the 2021 season. Rob Manfred is a failure as a leader. Since becoming commissioner of MLB in 2015, the integrity of the game has all but disappeared. Cheating has been non-discouraged and cheaters have gone unpunished. The Cardinals hacked into the Astros database... the Astros and Red Sox won World Series titles by stealing signs, and pitchers are using foreign substances on the ball to increase spin rates and velocity.
So, what are players getting punished for today? Apparently... for having fun. You know, pimping home runs.
Additionally, broadcasts have become harder for fans to access... its best players aren't being marketed well... the minor league system has been shredded, rule changes have been ineffective, and our young generation isn't being attracted to the game.
It's time MLB rids itself of this poor leadership.
This comic is inspired the back of the 1986 design, in which Topps is currently celebrating its 35th anniversary... with special 86B set. The gum is painted onto a heavy black card stock, and signed on the back.
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.
