Ham Porter, the Great Bambino
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
The story of The Sandlot takes place in the summer of 1962. A group of neighborhood kids come of age and also rescue a ball signed by the great Bambino himself... Babe Ruth.
Topps designed their 2011 Heritage to celebrate the 1962 set. Hence, this gum portrait of Ham Porter is painted on 2011 Topps Heritage #139... Babe Ruth Special (60th Homer).
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.
