Slammin' Sammy Boombox (Diptych)
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Slammin' Sammy made a lot of noise with his bat... and his boombox. In 2004, a season of high expectations after nearly reaching the World Series, Sosa blasted the same salsa music every single day in the small clubhouse. This annoyed a lot of teammates.
The Cubs missed the playoffs, dropping 7 of their last 9. Sosa decided not to play in the final game, and left Wrigley Field early. This prompted some teammates to smash his boombox to pieces.
The set of two cards is painted on 1990 Topps #692.
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.
