1964 Topps #125 Pete Rose

Oh man, what a big get for ol' Red Cardboard. This was part of a COMC package that came yesterday, but I needed to get this bad boy posted.

Four perfectly arced corners. A couple creases on the bottom, but none across the photo. Some surface scratching. Off-center. But wonderfully acceptable. And the price was wicked low.

Petey certainly earned that All-Star Rookie trophy. Played in 157 games, got 170 hits, bat .273, and won the NL ROY.

Most importantly, this card wraps up my 1964 team set, so a Completely Red is forthcoming. Sweet.

Go Reds.


  1. AWESOME! One of the best cards of all-time. Period! Congrats on landing it finally!

  2. Great get. Nothing wrong with that card

  3. Thank you both. I was pretty stoked to see it so cheap.
