"Charlie Hussle" was a nickname given to Pete Rose in his first Spring Training, when veteran Reds players found his non-stop go-go attitude to be WAY over the top. Fortunately, it did not take long for Rose to turn a negative into a positive, as Cincinnati (and Philly) fans cheered "Charlie"s every frantic move for more than 20 years!
For fans of the legendary superstar, this is the ultimate piece for your wall! In classic black-and-white, this poster features a great moment from the Big Red Machine years of the 1970s. It's a play at the plate against midwestern rivals St. Louis Cardinals, and with Ted Simmons blocking the plate, there was only one thing for Rose to do - TAKE HIM OUT! This print captures the split second before contact, with a wild-haired, scowly-faced Rose fearlessly sliding full-speed into Simmons' legs, for the ultimate goal of scoring another of his 2,165 career runs. It could have been the pennant race, it could have been a dog-day afternoon, but for Rose the game was always played the same - with passion, intensity, and a reckless streak that thrilled us all.
For the first time ever, this amazing image is available poster-sized for your wall! Exclusive to SportsPosterWarehouse.com, it features a huge reproduction from the original photographic negative - a truly wonderful, typical Pete Rose moment. For fans of old-school baseball and the man who kept it alive for an entire generation, this print deserves a nice frame and a prominent place on your wall!
