Pete the Exhibit Reds HOF

For anyone that missed this exhibit in 2007 here are the pictures I have of it.  It was a great exhibit that hopefully will be done again.  I got to meet a lot of Rose collectors in person for the first time and the collection the Reds amassed was great to see under 1 roof.

Dayton Daily News

Traveled up the way to Dayton to check out their newspaper archives and wanted to catalog and verify the 1970 set.  Which I did then Chuck asked me what about the 1971 issue never heard of it well I went back today and there it was another variation.  There are technically 3 variations the first one has field as the last line and was from the ad introducing the set on 4/5/1970 it could be cut out and saved.  Then his regular card was double printed once 4/6/1970 then again after the all star game on 7/15/1970.  Then again on 3/30/1971 they issued a bubblegumless card update which has new picture new bio and other stats.  Funny thing is Rose was printed 4 times and should be easier to get but they are all rather scarce and don't pop up too often.

Here is 1a - last line field.

Here is regular 1b - last line right field.

And Finally 1c - 1971 version weight 190 vs 194 (1970) 

Sorry for the poor scans but they are from microfilm if anyone has real deal please send them over.

Pete Rose the Foreigner

I wanted to highlight all the foreign (aka not US made) products I have of Rose.  They are some of my favorite just because they are unique and mostly rather scarce and some are really rare.  If you figure it was released in a foreign country even Canada has a smaller collector base for baseball items then it has to get over to US while the internet has greatly helped that they are still pretty scarce.  Items come mainly from Japan and Venezuela but there are some Korean, Mexican, Canadian (just included the french items not OPC) items.  My favorite card is actually the Japanese Mizuno postcard just always liked the Japanese script on it.

Here they all are in 1 spot.  Have any others?  Send in a scan.

1987 DuPont

Another uncatalogued set issued in 1987 they are 8 1/2 x 11 1/4 in size issued at various agricultural events.  The backs offer some info on dupont agriculture items and some are blank backed.  A pretty scarce item since they were issued at a very non baseball event not many were held onto.

2010 UD Exquisite in the wild

Well UD has released their first Rose card.  In series 1 of regular UD 1 exquisite card are seeded 1 card each per 12 card case each card in numbered to 75 so they are tough pulls.  It remains to be seen if these might be recalled due to MLB suing UD over logos on the card but I think probably be settled for a bunch of money as that is what MLB likes.  They plan on spreading exquisite over all their product lines so not sure if all 75 will be in series 1 boxes or will slowly be trickled out with each product.  Also no complete checklist is out so there might be more and maybe an auto or relic card thrown into the mix.

1991 Pocket Pages

Wanted to highlight this uncatalogued set.  It was produced in 3 card strips with 2 in each magazine from Oct 91-Dec.  The pocket page magazine ran with cards from 91-94 with 3 distinct styles the 91 version, 92-93 version and 93-94 version Pete however was only issued in the 91 specifically the Oct 91 magazine.  The magazine itself was about the CA collector shows so it wasn't distributed to a wide audience.  The checklist below is incomplete so if anyone can fill the holes please let me know will highlight the other years in the future.
