Hello, Win Column!

Yes, the guys won again last night. It would be nice to see them win tonight to be just one win from .500. It would also be nice to hear Mark Holtz call another Rangers game. It was always good to hear his trademark "Hello, Win Column!" call at the end of a game.

Today's card of Mr. Holtz is part of the 2005 Donruss Classics Rangers Legacy set and has no number. I got it in today from a trade on The Bench. Part of what I like about this hobby is trading. That is some of what I miss from the days when everyone at least dabbled in cards. Online trading helps get part of that back.

One thing that I have found helps build my Rangers collection is team lot trades. I send out a lot of commons and minor stars of a team I don't follow and get a similar lot of Rangers back. These trades are almost always a blast and help clear out the commons box. Anyone interested in putting a team lot trade together? If so, check out the list below for the teams I have to trade and then shoot me an e-mail.

Small lots: Angels, Twins, White Sox, Tigers, Dodgers, Braves, D-Rays.
Larger lots: Expos (not Nats.), Cardinals, Padres, Orioles, Mets, Indians, Cubs, Mariners, Giants, Rockies, Brewers, Astros, Phillies.

I wouldn't mind a small blind team trade.

I miss Mark too. I am glad they still post his phrase "Hello Win Column" on the board when the Rangers win.

Steve - Just sent you an E-mail to get the ball rolling on a trade.

Joey - I agree. No better phrase to use to celebrate a win.
