Madison Bumgarner Day (3-18-08)

One of the things I love about WordPress is being able to read the daily stats. For example, how many hits per day, what posts are more popular than others, and best of all, Google search results are all readily available to me in my dashboard. For example, did you know that the blog about Albert Pujol’s member is #1 all-time at Wax Heaven with 2,600+ page views? Also, the full scan of the card has been downloaded close to 800 times? Or more amazingly, that Stale Gum brings in the most referrers to Wax Heaven? That’s right, he’s brought in over 2,300+ views alone from a tiny link on his blog. Thanks, Chris!
Well, lately I have been getting a ton of Google searches coming to the site looking for Madison Bumgarner. I don’t know if he’s been Googling himself to read what people are saying about him or it’s his dad, photographer, and/or friend checking out the site but it has become the 7th most searched Google search to get to Wax Heaven. As you may or may know, I wrote a satire on Madison’s baseball card a while back and it kind of blew up. You can read it by going HERE.
For the record, the post was made in jest. It was a funny-looking card but if anyone should be blamed, it is Topps. The kid was signed straight out of High School and you couldn’t find a better picture to use? Whatever the case, I still think it’s awesome so today, March 18th, is officially Madison Bumgarner Day at Wax Heaven. As a tribute, I am posting the best Bumgarner cards, ever.
Madison, if you are reading…let me know when you get your call to the “show” and I will come watch you play against the Florida Marlins, but only if you promise not to beat me up, or make out with my wife.


  1. I am sick and tired of Topps and their mirror card sets. Every card looks the same! Put 1% of the ugly foil stamping budget and funnel it into hiring photographers fer cryin out loud!!!

  2. Great point. In this day and age, we get the same shot from year to year, digitally enhanced with the Giants logo of course. That’s BS.

  3. well personally if you know anything about baseball and being drafted you would know that Madison has better things to do besides google himself! He actually could care less what people say about him, now as far as his dad goes-he is a lunatic! Don’t even begin to compare Madison to his dad! I say get a life…
