    Description

    1978 Pete Rose Game Worn & Signed Cincinnati Reds Uniform. This is the season of Rose's famous forty-four game hit streak, the most serious threat to DiMaggio's record since 1941, and the year Rose recorded his 3.000th base knock. And for those who think that Charlie Hustle had no pop in his bat, we note that the thirty-seven year old topped all National Leaguers with a remarkable fifty-one doubles in that tally.

    This "Rawlings size 44" jersey and matching pants saw action that fateful season. Number "14" and chenille Reds logo patch appears on the chest with a "14 Rose" on verso. Lower front interior tail is labeled "Rawlings size 44" with "Set 1 1978" flap tag affixed. Rose signed the front and inscribed "5-5-78" in bold black felt tip. There are two minor stains near the signature. The matching pants have a "Rawlings size 32" tag and "14 32 24 78" swatch in the waistline. Rose also signed these and included "5-5-78." Remember, 1978 was the year that Rose gave Joltin' Joe his biggest scare to date, hitting safely in forty-four consecutive games. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from SGC Authentic. Two Full LOAs from PSA/DNA.
