Ferris Bueller's Day... at Wrigley
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Ferris Bueller's Day Off hit the box office in June of 1986. Director John Hughes centered many of his films in the Chicagoland area, so it's no surprise that 3 suburban teenagers skipping school on a late Spring afternoon made their way to a Cubs game. That's what I would've done!
This scene used footage from a game at Wrigley on June 5, 1985. Both Ferris and Ryne Sandberg took the day off, as backup Chris Speier played 2nd base that afternoon.
The defending NL East champs entered the day at 29-18, 1 game behind the Mets for the division lead. However, while Ferris may have been saved... injuries derailed the Cubs promising start, finishing the year in 4th place.
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.
