The son of former Yankees and Rangers infielder Wayne Tolleson, Steve spent a few years in the Twins minor league system. With the glut of light hitting middle infielders already on their 40-man roster (Nick Punto, Brendan Harris, Alexi Casilla, Matt Tolbert, Trevor Plouffe), the Twins tried sneaking him through waivers this spring. The Oakland A's grabbed him and he is now playing for their AAA affiliate in Sacramento. It appears he initially tried signing this card in ballpoint. When that didn't take on the glossy card, he presumably whipped out the Sharpie.
