    1980's Pete Rose Handwritten "Little Black Book." Ok, it's not technically a little black book, but it tells the story better than "little yellow Snoopy card." Charlie Hustle becomes Charlie Hustler with the revelation of this impressive supply of ladies' phone numbers from various area codes across the United States. We have a yellow notebook page with seven ladies listed, a single phone number on a Pittsburgh hotel notepad page, a 1987 love letter to Pete, and a few photos of Rose's harem. There's even a lady's address and phone number applied to a blank "Official Batting Order" card, suggesting Rose spotted a young babe in the stands of the ballpark and solicited her info. The Snoopy card exhibits some water staining and tearing, but the condition is of secondary importance. To paraphrase Mel Brooks, "It's good to be the [Hit] King."
