Hand-made Collectible Art Card

Cal Ripken Jr. is nicknamed "The Iron Man," for his record of 2,632 consecutive games. On September 6, 1995, Ripken surpassed Lou Gehrig's streak of 2,130... a record that stood for 56 years, and was thought to be invincible. This inked gum stick uses the image of a vintage Iron Man comic book cover.

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.
