A's Team Photo Day

I have to laugh. I have to wonder. September 19th is A's "Team Photo" Giveaway day. The first 10,000 fans will get a photo of the A's. But *which* A's?

Some combination of the following players have been with the team this year (forget Sept 1 and the 40 man roster, I maintain that very few of these 50 players have anything to do with the 15 additional players). I don't even remember them all by name, let alone their faces. That's a lot of combos for the team picture. I'm not good at math, or factorials, I'll let someone else do it. Here's the names, have a fun trip down memory lane:
