Random Rangers auto #6.

I remember my Grandfather saying that the Rangers found Geno Petralli on a Dr. Pepper loading dock. Not sure if that story is true or not. Cool if it is. I got this card signed through the mail by Geno during his playing days back in the early 1990's.

It's true he was working for Dr. Pepper when he got a call from Texas telling him they had aquired him and needed him to report to the minors.

Geno is a great guy and I was lucky enough to be close with his family for several years during his time with the Rangers.

He, along with Brad Arnsberg, Bobby Witt, Curtis Wilkerson & Mitch Williams were the nicest pro ballplayers I ever met.

Glad to hear that Geno was a nice guy. I always liked him when he played for Texas. Can't seem to get a through the mail auto request to go through now though, the cards just disappear.
