The swooping stripe pattern from 1982 Topps is among the most iconic design elements from the decade. Card #766 features the Minnesota Twins Future Stars, highlighted by first baseman Kent Hrbek.
Inspired by 1982 Topps card #766 -Minnesota Future stars! 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!
