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 gum stick art 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 the number produced.
- These art cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... customized with my Rosen signature.
I'm maintaining a growing checklist of the cards I've painted for your reference. It details what cards are available for purchase, and which ones are owned by collectors. Collectors can reference my complete checklist.
