Very poor decision by whomever is responsible.

Agree 100%... I can't even think of a LEGITAMITE reason behind it... The "he was barred from baseball" shouldn't mean he is barred from 2013 topps...

I buy modern boxes every now and then, (actually just grabbed 3 about a week ago)... I will make sure to avoid topps in the same way they avoid Pete Rose, UD - you have my business.

The explanation is this:

Topps is a licensed MLB product and Rose was banned from MLB, so he must not be recognized on any MLB licensed products / trading cards or anything else that is an official MLB product...it wasn't a Topps decision, but MLB decision.

Rose is allowed to appear on any trading card etc that does not have an MLB license.

I am from Cincinnati and a big Rose fan too...he deserves to go in the Hall!

If this is the case, then I have no problem with Topps following the letter of the law and leaving Pete out.

Damn Right!

I don't have a problem with MLB not allowing his image to be used, but to totally delete his MLB stats? That's bizarre.:confused:

Unfortunately, they cant delete his masssive ego. PS, I think his new gf deserves enshrinement.

Positively Orwellian; Pete's been un-personed!

interesting that in todays society where values for the most part are out the door, that baseball is still keeping the likes of Joe Jackson, and Pete Rose out of the HOF and baseball recognition.
We forgive people who have done much worse compared to these two men. I appreciate the fact that baseball has values and is trying its best to punish cheaters.
I feel that the time has come for Mr. Rose and Mr. Jackson to get to the promised land and be recognized by baseball and the commisioner.
I an just a fan of the game neither a Rose or Jackson fan per say, but i know when enough is enough.
Happy Valentines :)

lol well they can try but no one will forget rose or jackson no matter what MLB does.

Also I can say i will never forget bonds, mcgwire and all the roid guys.

I always considered this Ken McMullen's rookie card anyway.

In my opinion Rose fully deserves his untouchable status and it is entirely of his own doing. I don't feel bad for him and I'd love it if he was left out of the HOF entirely forever.

I don't have a problem with Topps banning Pete Rose — it's a free country. I just hope they don't take offense when I ban their cards from my collection ...

Rose was a wise guy. He thought he was above all the rules. I guess this knocked him down a notch or two. Bye bye Pete, paybacks a bitch!

The stats are not being deleted, it's just his name that's not being mentioned. Instead of "Pete Rose's record" it says "the record."

If this were Facebook I would "like" this.

This doesn't really surprise me in the least. Pete can't catch a break anywhere. It is true about Pete being a real down to earth guy, he's certainly a regular out here in Vegas doing signings on the strip.
