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

Completed some fresh plexi! Very common to see a “No Pepper” sign at a baseball field. It’s a pre-game exercise where a batter uses a quick short swing to pepper balls at fielders standing nearby. It can be dangerous for spectators and also wears out the grass… so, most parks have banned it. I usedContinue reading

By request from @waxpacktimemachine I’m sharing my home exhibit wall… currently Wrigley/Cubs themed. All those pieces are 24" squares… 34"x34" when hung as a diamond.

Barry Bonds’ record breaking 756th home run ball was purchased by fashion designer Marc Ecko for $752,467. He then defaced the ball by engraving it with an asterisk. The ball now sits in the Hall of Fame. I used 70 cards to make this… choosing 1989 Donruss. The orange backs tie Barry’s early years asContinue reading

The best stache in baseball belongs to HOFer Rollie Fingers… 3x World Series champ, MVP, Cy Young, and 4x Rolaids Relief Man winner. Three of those Rolaids awards came with San Diego and the 4th with Milwaukee. I used 1978, 81, 83 and 85 @topps to make this piece.

In 1974, @burgerking introduced the slogan, “Have it your way.” A few years later, that meant you could order your burger with a side of @topps baseball cards. Meet the ‘79 @phillies… Rose, Schmidt, Carlton, Bowa, Luzinski, etc. Original artwork by #MatthewLeeRosen #topps #toppsbaseballcards #1979 #70s #70svintage #70sfashion #plexiglass #plexiglassart #philadelphia #phillies #philly #mikeschmidt #peteroseContinue reading
