One of the most important cards of the decade, the 1963 Topps Pete Rose was one of the cards that ushered in the rookie card craze that began in the early 1980s as Rose closed in on Ty Cobb's career hit record.  Even today, Rose remains one of the most popular players not in the Hall of Fame, simultaneously serving as an inspiration for hard work and hustle, and a cautionary tale for overindulgence and rule breaking.  This example features a youthful Rose, his entire career ahead of him, sharp and clean, with a few stray specks of print snow and a slight left-to-right centering issue conspiring to keep the card from a higher holder.
