A side-by-side comparison of my first two giant gum sticks. They look pretty real! Each one 12" x 36" #baseballcard #baseballcardart #popart #baseballcardartist #rynesandberg #chicagocubs #barrybonds #pittsburghpirates #topps #pink #bubblegum #gum #matthewleerosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B63GUrKnv_T/?igshid=6vo36cusc389

Another giant gum stick! When I was a little kid, I was always happy to find a Sandberg inside an ‘85 @topps wax pack. Will be traveling for a while… so no new art till I’m back ūüėē #baseballcard #baseballcardart #popart¬†#baseballcardartist #rynesandberg #chicagocubs #topps #pink¬†#bubblegum ¬†#gum #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B61mHbHHR9z/?igshid=7ry7kg74uvy6

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

I’ve totally enjoyed making my gum stick concept, and the paint looks real! The monochrome black represents the player’s exclusion from the Hall of Fame, and the gum is the negative mark left on his career. #1986 #topps #barrybonds #bubblegum #baseballcardart by #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B6OLx1lncS_/?igshid=ab7o5n87o0lq

New gum stick completed. Barry Bonds ‘86 @topps traded… all blacked out to symbolize his tainted career. #1986 #topps¬†#pirates #barrybonds #baseballcard #pink¬†#bubblegum #popart #baseballcardart by¬†#baseballcardartist #MatthewLeeRosen https://www.instagram.com/p/B6MR5iLnl2Y/?igshid=6keraugx1874
