Pete Rose, (1941-) - Autographed 20.3 x 25.4cm (8 x 10in) photo - Nicknamed “Charlie Hustle”, Rose still holds numerous major league records including most lifetime hits (4,256), games played (3,562) and singles (3,215). He compiled a .303 batting average over his career and was on the All-star team 17 times. He was also a 3-time batting champion and was part of 3 World Series winning teams. Even though his career is worthy of Hall of Fame induction, he is currently “permanently ineligible” for selection. It was determined that he gambled on games while he was a playing coach for the Cincinnati Reds from 1984-86.
