Boomstick was inspired by vintage Bazooka packaging, a product of Topps Chewing Gum Incorporated. The comic illustrations from the gum also found their way to the back of the baseball cards, and the two products have always been closely associated.
Inspired by vintage Bazooka gum packaging. Baseball card artist Matthew Lee Rosen repurposes junk wax to celebrate the pop culture of America's pastime. The smell of chewing gum and card stock triggers fond memories for anyone who opened up wax packs as a kid in the 1980’s. His work aims to recapture that part of our childhood. We've partnered with him to design a series of bats that, hopefully, transport you back to the good 'ol eighties. Cheers!
Every Pillbox artist baseball bat is crafted and painted at our shop in Winona, Minnesota. Each is 34 inches long and emblazoned with the Pillbox Bat Co. mark just above the grip and an enamel pin inlaid into the knob. Hang it on the wall or lather up the pine tar and put 'er to use in a pickup game with the folks around your cul-de-sac. Playball!
