Reggie Jackson Pollock #10
Made-to-order baseball card art (24x36)
A mash-up of Jacksons results in Reggie Jackson Pollock.
Just a week prior to the 1976 season, the A's traded Reggie Jackson to the Orioles. He played a full, forgettable season in Baltimore and became a free agent... signing with the Yankees in November. As Topps was producing their 1977 set, they used photos from the previous season. Reggie's image needed to be airbrushed (in the days before Photoshop and Traded sets) to picture him in his new uniform.
Airbrushing was a common practice for Topps during that time.... and thus, we have Mr. October's first card as a New York Yankee. An iconic piece of junk wax.
This abstract combines techniques by two of my favorite artists: Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol. The designed paint splatter is reminiscent of Pollock's expressionism... pulling from the orange and blue elements of the card, and accented with bubble gum pink. The layered, color separated, card image references the screen print process utilized by Warhol.
How this acrylic print is made
I wanted to offer some budget-friendly wall art to fans of my work. So, I’ve partnered with Gooten to create high-quality prints on-demand. Gooten is named in honor of Johannes Gutenberg, creator of the first printing press, and the digital prints they produce are excellent… meeting my high standards. I’ve chosen to have my artwork produced on acrylic to compliment my plexiglass paintings.
- The designs are printed on high resolution archival paper with archival inks.
- Each print is fused onto the back side of the acrylic pane for a modern, frameless look.
- A french cleat box is mounted on the back for wall hanging.
- All pieces are original designs by yours truly, Matthew Lee Rosen.
- Orders will be shipped directly from Gooten.
High quality digital print is fused underneath a layer of 1/8” thick acrylic.
The hanging cleat box helps the artwork float nicely off the wall.
Each order ships ready to hang with hardware included.
