The next 1978 “Future Stars” card in the thread is of Pete Rose, the Player of the Decade as named by the Sporting News at the end of the wild-70’s:
Nice shot of the young Rose in-action before he became the all-time hit
king along with a photo of him playing third at the back-end of his
“Charlie Hustle” was still kicking-it, with a 44-game hitting streak and
no-less than a decade left on his (should-be) Hall of Fame career.
The man was a baseball-machine, only to have his career derailed by gambling problems.
I hope that can all be worked out so he can finally get his rightful
spot in Cooperstown, next his former teammates Morgan, Bench and Perez.
