2006 Topps Chrome Refractor #138 David Eckstein
David Mark Eckstein was born in Sanford, Florida on January 20, 1975. He was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 1997. The Cardinals signed Eck as a free agent on December 23, 2004. He played three seasons (2005-2007) with the Cardinals and was the 2006 World Series MVP. Before it happened, no one would have thought the 5'6" shortstop could achieve such an honor, but perhaps that's how he earned the nickname, X-Factor.
