Making my artwork can sometimes be therapeutic. Fitting that I chose to make this piece yesterday… the worst day since the market crash of ‘87. It was the spring of ’87, when Doc failed a drug test, beginning his own crash. #baseballcardart #baseballcards #80s #newyorkmets #dwightgooden #topps #recordbreaker #pink #bubblegum https://www.instagram.com/p/B9ronGYH5ZR/?igshid=xty0c95o5vpw

Made the other half of the Bash Bros… ‘87 Topps Canseco. #baseballart #baseballcardart #baseballcards #topps #80s #pink #bubblegum #oaklandathletics #oakland #markmcgwire #josecanseco #bashbrothers #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B9KT1k0nv3Q/?igshid=m1ye3z8jgvlg

Newest gum stick… the ‘89 All-Star. I gotta rank ’82 & ’89 as the best All-Star designs from the decade. #baseballart #baseballcards #baseballcardart #thehobby #topps #allstar #80s #rynesandberg #chicagocubs #pink #bubblegum #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B9FGCUVn4C4/?igshid=570er3cv9oce

New experiment: the broken gum stick. I’ve symbolically chosen the ‘88 Topps McGwire. He broke the rookie HR record to earn the All-Star Rookie cup… then fractured the game with steroids. #baseballcards #baseballcardart #topps #markmcgwire #oaklandathletics #pink #bubblegum #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B9CRnPfnJiB/?igshid=16jr0yhuzjkff

Portraits aren’t really my thing… I prefer to focus on the design elements of old cards. But @jumbotronart suggested I do one. So… here’s Bo! 1986 @topps traded. #baseballart #baseballcardart #baseballcards #MatthewLeeRosen #topps #toppstraded #bojackson #kansascityroyals #pink #gum #bubblegum https://www.instagram.com/p/B865QZ0HDx0/?igshid=1azm1cmhwo34d

Camouflaged with raised text to express the repeated pattern, using over 100 reprints of 1953 Topps.

Goodbye 2019… my year of diamonds. I made 60 of them! More than 1 per week, even while traveling half the year. Thank you all for following my creative journey. I hope 2020 brings more pride and achievements for everyone. #baseballcards #baseballcardart #baseballcardartist #diamonds #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B6vfStZHMPV/?igshid=ylvlqq3x8yub
