Hand-made collectible art card
Available for pre-order

During the 1975 postseason, Joe Garagiola aired a television segment that matched Kurt Bevacqua (Brewers) against Johnny Oates (Phillies) for a Bazooka Bubble Gum Blowing Championship. This produced a rather iconic card of Bevacqua in the following 1976 set.

In 2020, Topps issued a throwback set (print run of only 615), photographing 6 players all blowing bubbles on the field. The most popular card is Ronald Acuna Jr. (#244), fetching the highest prices on the secondary market.

The 3 color design comes at a premium price. Each card will be made per order. Card holder stand not included, used for photographic purposes only.

  • Custom orders are accepted to include Bevacqua with any of the 6 cards from this Throwback set.
  • For custom orders: Please leave a note at checkout, explaining which player(s) you want.

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.
