2011 csd Preview – Mark Ellis
Mark became an Athletic in 2001 when he came over from the Royals with Johnny Damon. He has since locked down the second base position. Last season he was healthy and came up just a little shy of batting .300.
This picture was taken in 2009 at the Cell as Mark was completed an around the horn. When I started adding a little color to the cards the first team I thought of was the A’s. LaPorte native Charlie Finley really started to liven things up with the A’s uniforms of the 70’s. This card was one of the first cards where I put some color on the front.
