1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #6 – Pete Rose

Headline – “Pete Rose Passes Ty Cobb For The Most Singles In History”

The Story – Cincinnati, Ohio, September 30, 1984:  Reds’ Pete Rose continued his assault on the records books this season.  He surpassed Carl Yastrzemski’s record of 3,308 games and finished campaign with 3,082 singles, more one-base hits than anyone in history.  The former mark of 3,052 was set by Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, 1905-1928.

My added notes – Put him in ‘The Hall’ already!!!

  1. You are right he needs to be in the Hall. Today we are having conversations about wether a guy who took steriods deserves to be in The Hall of Fame. Show me a guy playing today who even has a chance of reaching 4000 hits???? They wont cause they do not play as hard as Pete did. Great post thanks

  2. Put him in the Hall of Fame. He deserves it!

  3. How much is this card worth??
