The Iconic Series: 1973 Topps Pete Rose

  I know Pete Rose’s rookie card is worth more but I always think of this card of Rose stands out more to me, maybe because I think it was his MVP year card. It is also an interesting action shot taken at Candlestick Park, as Pete appears to be following a foul ball he hit. It is a better card than his rookie card that he shared with other players.  In a less offensive time, Pete Rose was an major offensive force even though he did not hit home runs or drive in a lot of runs. He was at the top of his game in 1973.
