Pete Rose 1985 Topps Manager Card

Pete Rose 1985 Topps Manager Card

I will never get tired of adding cards of Pete Rose to my collection.  I wish that he was honored by Topps today in the same manner that other baseball greats have been – with oodles and oodles of new/modern cards every year.

Thankfully, Pete was featured on a lot of baseball cards during his playing days.  And his managing days as well.

This card is from the 1985 Topps set.  It was a season in which he both played for and managed the Cincinnati Reds.

The Reds went 89-72 under Rose in his first full season as the Reds skipper.  As for his play, Rose hit .264 in 119 games for the team.

They don’t make them like Pete Rose anymore…
