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!
