My 10 Favorite Card Purchases of 2011: Number 6


Card #6 on the list features the only player, Grant Green, that appeared on last years list. This is his 2010 Bowman Chrome Red Refractor /5. Ironically, last years card was his 2009 Elite Extra Edition Gold Status Autograph /5. This card could only be better if it were the autographed version, but maybe I’ll get my hands on that one day as well.

Baseball America rated Green the #1 prospect in the A’s organization in 2011. It will be very interesting to see where he ranks in 2012 when the list comes out on January 25th. The A’s added a lot of talent to their organization recently through a number of trades. It would not surprise me to see Green slip out of that #1 spot, especially considering he’s been moved from shortstop to the outfield.

Green had a nice 2011 hitting .291 for AA Midland. The A’s promoted him to AAA Sacramento in September so he could get a taste of the PCL playoffs. He will start 2012 in Sacramento and most likely spend the majority of the season there honing his outfield skills.
