1969 Topps
Pete Rose


Did you know ...?

The back of this card reveals that Rose injured his thumb in 1968 yet still managed a .335 batting average. His stats also show that he collected 210 hits, 42 doubles, 6 triples and 10 homers. Not a bad season for the man who would eventually surpass Ty Cobb as the player with the most hits in the game.

It's too bad there's pretty significant paper loss on the card's front. Can't you just see a stray piece of tape adhering itself to the card. One quick rip and what you see is what you get.

Too bad.

That's a great card... Man you hate to see that rip on top. It's almost painful!
