Pete Rose Bobblehead

December is bobblehead month here at Redscardcollector and what better way to start out bobblehead month with none other than Mr. Red himself....Pete Rose. 40,000 of these nodders were passed out on September 23, 2002 at a charity softball event held at Cinergy Field that featured many players from the Big Red Machine, as well as other celebrity players including Steve Garvey and Ozzie Smith. The pose for the bobblehead was based off of Rose pointing upward from first base immediately after his 4,192nd hit to pass Ty Cobb as the all time Hit King. So I guess you could say that this wasn't an official Red's bobblehead since it was given out at a charity event at Cinergy and since Rose has been banned from baseball for life...but I still think it's a great bobblehead.
