Pete Rose 1994 Upper Deck Baseball ‘The American Epic’ – 1985

Pete Rose 1994 Upper Deck Baseball ‘The American Epic’ – 1985

Don’t get me wrong, I am a big-time fan of Peter Edward Rose.  Watching him collect the hit that broke Ty Cobb’s record for most career hits remains as one of the greatest memories I have of watching sports on television.

I am just not happy with this card.

Take a look:

VINTAGE ROSE 1985

Wasn’t Upper Deck supposed to be the ground-breaking company?  The one known for their vivid use of color?  The one with the great cardstock, and imagination?

Somebody was sleeping on the job when this card passed by the editor’s desk.

We deserved to much more than this when Upper Deck released this card in 1994.

And Pete deserved a hell of a lot better, too!!

  1. I thin that was just the way they did the set – all the cards were black and white.
