Wax Heaven Favorite Makes The Show

Madison Bumgarner, a prospect that’s been heavily covered on Wax Heaven since 2007 has been called up to the San Francisco Giants and will make his first Major League start in place of an injured Tim Lincecum.

The 19-year old Super Prospect out of North Carolina caught my eye when his hideous Bowman card began making some noise among collectors. I then posted a harmless blog which caught the ire of Madison’s father and a few of his friends.

Unfortunately for Bumgarner, who finished the Minor League season 12-2, Topps and Donruss kept using one horrible image after another for his baseball cards. The card you see below comes from 2009 Tristar Obak and is one of Madison’s best looking cards.

Good luck to Madison Bumgarner!

  1. wow, thats the first time Ive seen him with the without the “I gotta poop” look…

    it was a fun gag the card companies had going, I need to get one of those cards.

    and to madison- good luck! we are pulling for you

  2. hey, did you see his pic on mlb.com?

    he had an even worse face than the card!! the prank lives on!

  3. Not a bad first outing for MadBum. He got a no decision, with one walk and four punch-outs. However, he also got his “welcome to the big leagues”, and got taken deep twice with solo shots.

    I was at Tim Lincecum’s MLB debut game in 2007, and he also got a no-decision that day, but struck out three, and got taken deep twice (Howard and Victorino) for two-run homers.

    So, not bad for a first outing, by comparison. Looks like the NL Cy Young might be MadBum’s in 2010.
