Thanks for posting this! I meant to a week or so ago when I heard about it.

Warhol’s Pete is one of my favorite pieces. It brings together so much for me: Warhol, baseball, baseball cards, Pete Rose, Cincinnati, etc.

I contemplated picking up the $500 LE print that will be singed by Rose. I’ll have to pass… says:

yeah i came across it last night and was surprised you hadn’t mentioned it yet on here. i figured you’d be all of it. the signed print would be nice, but with the $500 price tag, I too will have to pass.

yeah, it’s a hefty price… but something i figured would be of certainly greater value in years to come. i wouldn’t get it to just invest though… i really love the print and would find a place to hang it up and enjoy it. says:

Yeah it certainly would be a great to hang one of these in the house as well as a nice investment.

I wonder how they’re printing these? Are they screenprinted? I couldn’t find any info on that.

I have an autgraphed Andy Warhol’s “Pete Rose.” This one of the last pieces of autographed memorabilia.

I personally had this autographed by Pete when He came to Boston. The print has been stored in a picture frame for the past18 years.

I will part this out for $400.00. Buyer pays S & H. If interested I may be reached at [email protected] Put Pete Rose in the subject line.
