No one here has said that Topps needs to put out a new Pete Rose baseball card, but if a card is going to refer to a record that Rose holds, then omitting Rose's name is stupid.
Will MLB next mandate that Shoeless Joe Jackson, Eddie Cicotte and the rest of the Black Sox be deleted from baseball box scores?
Anyone think MLB makes money from the sale of World Series photos? Is Rose to be deleted from any photos of the '70, '72, '75, '76, '80 and '83 World Series?
I guess future MLB photos and accounts of the 1970 All Star game will refer to an unknown player slamming into Ray Fosse to score the winning run for the NL.
I assume future accounts of game three of the 1973 NLCS will refer to a scuffle between Mets shortstop Bud Harrelson and an unknown Reds player.
I repeat, this decision by MLB is stupid.
