Gypsy Oak R423 Strip Cards

Some time back I became acquainted with Gypsy Oak on twitter.  An artist that focuses on baseball.  He's one of those hard medium artists.  You know, the kind that actually takes time to print his work.  Gypsy Oak frequently runs a retweet contest to win some of his stuff.  I retweeted and won.  The prize was a strip of R423 type cards, based on the 1950 issue.

They are petite.  I'm not quite sure how to display them.  I'm thinking of framing them.







GypsyOak creates cards other than the micro strip bubblegum cards.  Fantastic work.



Not just cards, but art in the more traditional sense.

  1. I thoroughly enjoy his work - Gypsy Oak makes some of the best baseball related art that I've ever seen. I consider myself lucky to have a few of his cards in my collection.

  2. Those Micro cards are really cool. Reminds me of the early 90s tiny Topps and Donruss cards I pulled from Cracker Jack boxes!
