1978 Pete Rose Cincinnati Reds Game Worn St. Patrick's Day Jersey (ex-Cincinnati Reds Gift Shop)

1978 Pete Rose Cincinnati Reds Game Worn St. Patrick's Day Jersey (ex-Cincinnati Reds Gift Shop)

The "wearing of the green" applied to baseball's all-time hits leader during spring training of 1978 as Pete Rose and his Reds teammates became one of the first clubs to don green-themed jerseys for a St. Patrick's Day Grapefruit League game. The rarest of all Rose jerseys for sure, we have seen a lot of imitations (one unknowingly bandied about the internet as real was torn down by MEARS), but THIS IS THE REAL THING. This is the actual one sold through the Cincinnati Reds Gift Shop decades ago. During the Big Red Machine glory years a treasure trove of the club's game used equipment was quietly sold to local fans and collectors for a song in the Reds own "Gift Shop". This specimen was obtained from one of the leading Pete Rose collector's in the world who lives right in Cincinnati of course. This jersey is a well respected entity whose existence was well known for years by many of the top Rose collectors. The usual red trim has been replaced by green but Pete's usual "14" appears on the front along with the "C Reds" logo. "ROSE" was sewn directly onto the back above the number and there is a shamrock on the left sleeve. Rose signed the unusual top on the front in 7/10 blue Sharpie and there is Rawlings Size 44 tag and Set 1 1978 tagging inside the front tail. The jersey shows light but definite use (as it should as it was worn only one game) with slight stains on the front. This one's worth a pot o' gold!
