Fat Elvis

#17 Lance Berkman "Fat Elvis" - 9" x 12" Acrylic on paper. I really like Berkman as a player - 6 time All-Star and one of the best all-time switch hitters in the NL but the main reason he is on this list is because of his nickname - FAT ELVIS. It is perfect. Not a very exciting list of 17s - Todd Helton, Mark Grace. Was fond of mimicking Mickey Rivers swing as a kid. Two Braves of note to wear 17 - Glenn "Mother" Hubbard and Felix Milan "The Kitten" - both had great gloves but not much bat.
#16 - we go back to the mound
