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!
