Lot 731: 1968 Pete Rose Game Worn Jersey with Photo Documentation
1968 started with a bang, not to mention a 22-game hit streak for Rose. Even after being sidelined for three weeks with a broken thumb later that year, a late season surge, which included a 19-game hit streak, powered him to the first batting crown of his career. From that season we offer this spectacular cream colored flannel "home" jersey. His number "14" is sewn in red tackle twill to the right breast opposite the "C-Reds" team patch on front while on the verso is "Rose 14". The tail, chain-stitched in red with "42" and "68", has two tags, "Rawlings [size] 42," and "Do Not Dry Clean." Use is measurable with scattered field markings on the jersey's front. Comes with photo documentation of Pete wearing this jersey. Also comes with LOA from person who received this jersey in 1969.
