1969 Topps #120 - Pete Rose
The second in a series of Gem Mint Vintage All Stars. This 1969 Rose is gorgeous. Pete is in his lefty stance in the batting cage, ready to smack a well-placed single into shallow left field. The card captures perfectly the majesty of Rose's preparation, dedication, form, and focus. A true treasure of card collecting goodness. I think. It's hard to tell since this card obviously found its way into a wood chipper.
