The Human Rain Delay
Hand-painted collectible baseball card
Mike Hargrove... famously nicknamed "The Human Rain Delay" for his annoying routine at the plate. Hargrove stepped out of the batter's box after each pitch and re-started his routine: adjusting his helmet... then his batting glove... then pulling his sleeves up, and finally wiping each hand on his pants.
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 gum stick art 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 the number produced.
- These art cards are protected inside an Ultra Pro One Touch magnetic card holder... customized with my matching Rosen signature label.
I'm maintaining a growing checklist of the cards I've painted for your reference. It details what cards are available for purchase, and which ones are owned by collectors. Collectors can reference my complete checklist.
