Pete Rose was at the top of his game in 1975, batting .317 with 7 home runs, 74 RBI and a League leading 112 runs scored. Those numbers helped fuel baseball's legendary "Big Red Machine" to the first of their two World Championships that decade. Offered is a Cincinnati Reds road jersey that was worn by Pete Rose during that memorable summer of '75. The grey knit jersey is lettered "Cincinnati" across the front and features Rose's uniform number, "14," on both the left breast and reverse. "Rose" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numbers are appliqued in red tackle twill. A "Wilson 44" label is situated on the interior rear tail. Rose has inscribed the jersey in blue Sharpie ("10") on the right breast, "Pete Rose/#4256." Original and unaltered, the jersey displays a full season of game wear throughout. This jersey was originally purchased at the Cincinnati Reds official gift shop in May of 1976 and is accompanied by both a COA from the store (specifically stating that this garment was worn by Rose in 1975) and a copy of the original register receipt from that purchase.
