Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Mike Piazza's father Vince was Tommy Lasorda's best friend from childhood. Lasorda was so close to the family that Vince even named him the godfather of Mike's little brother Tommy. When Mike was a teenager, Lasorda arranged a visit from the great Ted Williams. After coaching up Mike in the cage, Ted signed a copy of The Science of Hitting for him.
The card used is a 2018 Topps Archives designed after 1959 Topps... Williams' second to last season.
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.
