1964 Topps #125 Pete Rose

The 1964 Topps #125 Pete Rose might read All-Star Rookie on it, but it’s not considered an official rookie card. Though it highlights his rookie season in 1963 when he took home Rookie of the Year honors, it is his second card under the Topps brand, but his first Topps card where he appears by himself. This is an extremely valuable card, with some higher-graded versions selling for close to six figures. Happy Hunting!

That makes it his most expensive card and one of the Topps brand’s most coveted ever. Landing one of these takes a massive reach into the ole’ pockets. Happy Hunting!
