Hand-painted collectible baseball card
The backs of baseball cards have always been filled with stats. In the late 1970's, Bill James began to produce more modern formulas to calculate productivity. He eventually coined the phrase "Sabermetrics" to honor the Society for American Baseball Research.
While many of these statistics are commonplace to fans today, they were little known during the Junk Wax Era. So, I've updated the backs of these cards with SABR bubble gum.
Custom requests are available for any of your favorite players from the Junk Wax Era. Please note the player at checkout, and I will paint a vintage card from my collection.
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.
