One of the fine outfielders the Expos broke in during the early '80s, along with Andre Dawson and Tim Raines, but of course, Ellis was essentially used up by the time the Mets got him. Pictured below on a 1981 Topps Scratch-Off (yes, that's Pete Rose on the top of the card), and shown here on a 1982 Fleer Stamp. Six more cards are shown below as well.
