Rose Talks Autographs, Sports, HOF in Indy

You can walk around the National Sports Collectors Convention and it won’t take long to find a Pete Rose signed…something.

Rose has autographed countless items over the last several decades, turning it into his post-baseball ban livelihood.

You’d think, like Bob Feller, that just about everyone who wanted a Rose autograph would have one.

But that’s not the case.

Rose remains a popular guest, especially in the Midwest.

He made his first trip to Indianapolis since the early 1990s recently, as the featured attraction at a local sports card shop.  A local reporter chronicled the visit and chatted with the man who still holds the all-time MLB hits record while waiting for Cooperstown’s doors to open.
