Hand-made collectible art card

A mash-up of concepts. This series combines my Junk Wax Records and G-Sticks to create the ultimate Record Breaker baseball card. Made with colored vinyl on black vinyl records... cut to a standard 2.5" x 3.5" baseball card size.

  • Card #3: Mark McGwire shattered the rookie record for home runs with 49 (previous was 38 by Frank Robinson in 1956).
  • Card #4: Eddie Murray became the 1st player to hit HRs from both sides of the plate in back-to-back games.
  • Card #6: Nolan Ryan fanned 200 or more batters for the 11th time, passing former Mets teammate Tom Seaver. 

As with all my G-Sticks... the gum portrait is placed in the exact position in which the player's image would appear on the front of the card. Priced at a premium for the extra material and labor to execute this bold concept.

Unlike my G-Sticks on black stock, these broken records will NOT be signed on the back

Designer gum sticks. Pop art that actually pops!

My G-Sticks are a series of bubble gum artwork, inspired by that one stick of gum that was stuck to the last card in the wax pack. Typically tilted by 9 degrees, as a nod to the starting 9 on the diamond.

Here's what you'll receive with this order

  • My original ink illustration, directly onto a vintage piece of wax pack bubble gum.
  • Each illustrated gum stick is backed by a custom-designed setting, and typically placed in the exact position in which the image would appear on the actual card.
  • These art cards may be created using a heavy 75pt black stock, an original card, or just the clear case by itself.
  • Cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... finished with my matching Rosen signature label.
  • My G-Sticks made with black stock are signed on the back, and all cards will ship with bonus autographed items.
