Pascual Perez Needed a Map
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
In June of 1982, the Pirates dealt Pascual Perez to the Braves. Later that summer, he missed his start on August 19th, while circling the I-285 beltway three times looking for Fulton County Stadium. Pascual ran out of gas and arrived at the ballpark 10 minutes late.
Perez had just recently got a drivers license, and teammates started calling him 'Perimeter' and 'Wrong-Way.' He could've really used a map.

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.
