1986 Topps Ozzie Guillen (AS Rookie Cup)
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
White Sox shortstop Ozzie Guillen won the A.L. Rookie of the Year award in 1985... also being named to the Topps All-Star Rookie team. As with tradition, his sophomore '86 Topps would have included the Rookie Cup on it. However, after an 8-year hiatus, Topps didn't decide to bring back the cup until '87.
So.... I gave Ozzie the trophy he deserved.
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.
