Re: Pete Rose's quote
My newspaper last Sunday had an ad for some quarters with "baseball legends" featured on one side. 20 different players were featured. There was a quarter featuring Ty Cobb, with Michigan depicted on the reverse side of the quarter, a quarter featuring Babe Ruth with New York featured on the reverse side, etc. I believe that all but one of the quarters also noted under the picture of the player the year in which in he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. The exception was the quarter featuring the only Cincinnati Red in the group: Pete Rose.
That's right---there was no Johnny Bench quarter, there was no Joe Morgan quarter, there wasn't even a Jimmy Haynes or Pokey Reese or Juan Castro quarter--but there was a Pete Rose quarter.
