Sale Price $247.50
Rare (Feeney) National League baseball inscribed by baseball's career hits leader.
Inscribed Baseball signed: "To Murray/best wishes/Pete Rose", Rawlings Official National League baseball, Charles F. Feeney, President. Pete Rose, baseball's career leader in hits (4,256), singles, at bats and games played, had more than 200 hits in a season ten times. Nicknamed "Charlie Hustle", the 17-time All-Star during a 24-year major league career (1963-1986) went on to manage the Cincinnati Reds (1984-1989), the team with which he had starred four of his six World Series. Allegations of betting on baseball resulted in an agreement between Rose and Baseball Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti (1989 August 23) under which Rose was declared "permanently ineligible" to participate in Major League baseball (and hence ineligible to appear on the Hall of Fame ballot). (Giamatti died suddenly one week later of a heart attack.) Under the agreement, Rose acknowledged that Giamatti had a "factual basis to impose the penalty", but neither affirmed nor denied that he had bet on baseball. The document did not bar Rose from applying for reinstatement, nor did it bar him from making statements on the controversy, "so long as no such public statement contradicts the terms of this agreement." Rose applied for reinstatement in 1997. Many fans support his reinstatement and/or election to the Hall. Lightly soiled. Lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
