The next super-star to get the 1975 “In Action” treatment is “Charlie Hustle” Pete Rose, who was tearing up the league for a while before this card would have seen the light of day:
Rose already had a Rookie of the Year and MVP Award under his belt as
well as three batting titles, and was just about to go on a lead the
“Big Red Machine” to consecutive World Series wins in 1975 and 1976.
During the mid-70’s he was baseball royalty, on baseballs most vaunted
team, a team that had future Hall of Fame members Johnny Bench, Joe
Morgan, and Tony Perez.
Of course, he would go on to play another 11 years, retiring as
baseball’s all-time hit king as well as the all-time leader in games
played, plate appearances and at-bats over his 24-year career.
I'm not even going to get into that "other stuff" since for me, that has no basis on keeping him out of the Hall. Just my opinion, but if Rose isn't in the Hall of Fame representing the 1970's, the "Player of the Decade", then it's all a joke.
