Sam Bowie Jumpman (AIR Gold Edition)
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
One of the biggest draft day blunders in any sport.... with the 2nd overall pick in the 1984 NBA draft, the Portland Trail Blazers selected Sam Bowie. The Bulls happily drafted Michael Jordan with the next pick, and the rest is history.
Fleer basketball premiered with their 1986-87 launch... each wax pack containing 12 cards, 1 sticker... and 1 stick of gum. The first Jordan card is among the most iconic of all-time, and it also fetches a pretty high price tag. A Beckett graded 10 sold at auction for $100,000. While, I can't afford to paint on these Jordan cards, there are plenty of Sam Bowies available!
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.
