1988 Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Game Used Baseball Signed by Giamatti, Rose and Schott

1988 Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Game Used Baseball Signed by Giamatti, Rose and Schott

From the final full season of Pete Rose as manager of the Cincinnati Reds - and in the Major Leagues - this Official National League (Giamatti) baseball shows fine use from Opening Day of the 1988 season and comes with a letter from the fan that caught it and had it signed. It is signed by Rose on the sweet spot, Reds owner Marge Schott on a panel where she added "Great Catch, Opening Day '88" along with her trademark dog's paw, and Commissioner Bart Giamatti on a side panel, as he tried to jokingly add a drawing of an animal below his signature to imitate Schott's dog's paw. The signatures are 7-8/10 and capture a fascinating trio, as Rose would manage Schott's Redlegs into the 1989 season before accepting a lifetime ban from Giamatti.
