Hand-painted collectible baseball card
After Jason Giambi left Oakland as a free agent to sign a huge contract with the Yankees, Billy Beane didn't have the financial resources to replace the former MVP. He needed to rethink, in order to completely rebuild a team that had just won 102 games in 2001... and do it for pennies.
Paul DePodesta (played by Jonah Hill's fictional character of Peter Brand), helped Beane see the hidden value of On Base Percentage (OBP)... through the lens of Bill James and Sabermetrics. Giambi (.477), Johnny Damon (.324), and DH Olmedo Sáenz (.291) combined for an OBP of 1.092. Beane would seek out 3 inexpensive players with a targeted .364 each to refill that production.
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.
