    Description

    Pete Rose "I'm Sorry I Bet On Baseball" Inscription Single Signed Baseball, PSA, DNA Mint 9.
    Amid reports that he had bet on baseball, Rose was questioned in February 1989 by outgoing commissioner Peter Ueberroth and his replacement, Bart Giamatti. Rose denied the allegations and Ueberroth dropped the investigation. However, three days after Giamatti became Commissioner, lawyer John M. Dowd was retained to investigate these charges against Rose. A Sports Illustrated cover story published on March 21, 1989 gave the public their first detailed report of the allegations that Rose had placed bets on baseball games. Dowd interviewed many of Rose's associates, including alleged bookies and bet runners. He delivered a summary of his findings to the Commissioner in May. In it, Dowd documented Rose's alleged gambling activities in 1985 and 1986 and compiled a day-by-day account of Rose's alleged betting on baseball games in 1987. Although banned from baseball for his gambling issues, few can challenge "Charlie Hustle's" passion for the game. One of the most hardnosed and blue collar players ever to step between the lines, Rose will forever be respected for how he played the game. We offer a OML (Selig) baseball signed in black ballpoint on the side panel. Rose has added the inscription "I'm Sorry I Bet On Baseball." Authentication from PSA/DNA. Please be advised that seals on this ball cube may have been broken for imaging purposes. However, the ball is affixed with unique serialized PSA/DNA sticker.
