I had some leftover reprints of the 1915 Cracker Jacks… so I put them to use! It’s said that this set from the Deadball Era is among the most attractive cards ever produced. They are very difficult to locate, making them the equivalent of baseball card gold. A Christy Mathewson sold for $95,000 in 2012.Continue reading

The Mendoza Line (a .200 batting average) is the threshold for incompetent major league hitting. It began as a joke by George Brett teasing Mario Mendoza in an interview with ESPN’s Chris Berman… and has since become the low bar. It’s no wonder Mendoza was such a poor hitter (lifetime .215 average) with those squinty eyesContinue reading

Goose was one of the original modern closers of the late 70’s & early 80’s… intimidating batters with his fu manchu mustache, violent delivery and blistering fastball. Over his HOF career, he recorded the final out to clinch a division, pennant or World Series 7 different times!

When a team has zeros on the scoreboard, we refer to those as goose eggs… and Rich “Goose” Gossage recorded a ton of zeros while closing out some crucial games throughout his HOF career. Could I have just painted a goose instead? Sure… but that would’ve required no thought from anyone. Original artwork by #MatthewLeeRosenContinue reading

@r6d4 and I decided to trade some art! He’s a fan of the early 80’s big beards, mustaches and afros… and Oscar Gamble’s ‘82 @topps was a memorable part of his childhood. Oscar’s massive hair may have been iconic for his time, but his words are immortal, “They don’t think it be like it is,Continue reading

When @topps stopped including gum in ‘92, the baseball card bubble began to burst due to overproduction of cards in the 80’s from multiple manufacturers (Donruss, Fleer, Score, Upper Deck). The strike-cancelled World Series in ’94 was the last pin to drop.

Happy 4th! Bust out your explosives… In 1992, after forty years of creating wax packs, @topps stopped including gum and switched to a white card stock with a plastic wrapper. Ironically, this is when the baseball card bubble began to burst. Made with 1992 Topps… featuring #GregMaddux #BoJackson #RickeyHenderson #CraigBiggio and others. Original artwork byContinue reading
