Hand-painted collectible baseball card
June 23, 1984. The Cubs trailed the Cardinals 9-3 in the 6th... when Ryne Sandberg capped a 5-run rally with a single into left. Then, twice facing HOF closer (and former Cub) Bruce Sutter as the tying run in the Cubs’ last at-bat, Ryno homered both times to extend the game. The Cubs eventually won 12-11 on a walk-off single by Dave Owen in the 11th.
The game served as a national coming-out party for Sandberg, who went 5-for-6 with 7 RBI on a nationally televised Saturday afternoon broadcast. It launched a frenzy of "Ryno for Prez" signs and t-shirts at Wrigley, on his way toward earning the National League MVP honors.
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.
