2012 Leaf The Living Legend Pete Rose Autographs #AU-48

I decided that I couldn't really call myself a bona fide Reds card collector without owning a Pete Rose autograph. The only task, then, was to land on a good one. Rose has tons of autographs out there, as I'm sure you know. I went with one from the excellent Leaf Living Legend set. And more specifically, the card where Pete gets emotional after his 4,192nd hit. Say what you will about Pete Rose as a man (and there is more to say about him, positive and negative, than maybe anyone in baseball history), but the dude loved baseball. Never mind the hustle. This photo sums it up more than the head-firsts slides ever could. Good card.

Go Reds.
