1973 Topps - Dalton Jones.

Well, my Mom always used to say that if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything. That pretty much precludes talking about Derek Holland's injury, Rich Harden's meltdowns, the Rangers' losing streaks, etc. Mostly everything about the team right now.

Time to take a look back at 1973 and see if we can find anything positive. Today we come to card number 512 in the 1973 Topps set, Dalton Jones.

It can be positively said that Dalton Jones was no longer with the Rangers in 1973. After one season with the team he was released by Texas on January 25, 1973. That was the end of his major league career. He spent 1973 at Triple A for the Expos before hanging it up

Just a quick reminder to get your entry in for the Strat-O-Matic contest second round. In keeping with my Mom's advice I will only say that participation has not been what I was hoping for. It would be nice to see a few more folks in the mix. Jump in now, there's a Strat computer game on the line.

I really like that card. Lots of color, bright day...really nice. I would have entered the contest, but I have a couple of those myself!

Rangers won tonight!! We'll enjoy it while we can.
