1986 Topps Bumgarner

My second and final piece for this year’s Battle of the Bay Virtual Art Show! Follow¬†@battleofthebayart¬†to see more awesome A’s and Giants themed baseball art created by 28 artists, going on now and ending today!

Inspired by illustrated sports cards and initiatives like Topps’ Project70, I thought I’d try my hand and making my own artist baseball card! What a stint MadBum had with the San Francisco Giants! A key piece to the 3 World Series titles in 2010, 2012, and 2014 – and who can forget how dominant he was in 2014! Well deserving of the NLCS and World Series MVPs while setting an MLB record of 52 2/3rds innings pitched in a single postseason. To celebrate him, here’s my version of a 1986 Topps Madison Bumgarner card!
