It was the summer when it appeared that Joe DiMaggio's legendary hitting streak may be erased from the record books. In 1978, Pete Rose became the first man to come within 15 games of Joltin' Joe's 56-game record, captivating the country until August 1, when his quest concluded against the Mets at 44 games. This white pennant with red lettering commemorating Rose's attempt was sold at Riverfront Stadium and includes an actual photo of the local hero affixed. It is in EX-MT+ condition.
