Hand-painted collectible baseball card

In 1987, Topps was producing WWF trading cards in wax packs with bubble gum, and Andre the Giant's stardom was growing beyond his 7'4" 520lb frame. That year, Andre headlined WrestleMania III with Hulk Hogan, and even filled the big screen in The Princess Bride.

A couple years later, the Giant became the basis for street artist Shepard Fairey's iconic propaganda artwork. The photo from this card was used to create Fairey's "Andre the Giant has a Posse" sticker campaign, which he brainstormed at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1989.

I'm paying homage to the artist with my own artwork.

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.
