2015 marks the twenty-sixth year that Pete Rose has been banned from baseball for sports betting as a player and owner — one of the sport’s greatest controversies, and in many respects, one of its most disappointing revelations. Rose, arguably one of the greatest ever to play the game, has long been tainted after being charged with gambling and allegedly betting on his own team.
Despite Rose’s serious violation of a bevy of Major League Baseball rules and regulations, many fans — and Rose himself — believe he should be reinstated and allowed a place in the Hall of Fame: The two seemingly go hand in hand, as the Hall of Fame added a clause to its eligibility rules in 1990, stating that players who were on the ineligible list could not be considered as candidates.
Since his banning, there has never been a replicated “Charlie Hustle” jersey produced at a retail level… Until now…
To culminate the 2015 MLB All-Star, today (7.14.15) at 7pm EDT we will be launching the Ebbets Field x Packer “Banned” #14 Charlie Hustle Jersey online at PackerShoes.com in honor of baseball’s all-time hits leader and one of history’s greatest players.
The “Banned” jersey features authentic gray wool flannel with red and navy trim on collar and sleeves, red on navy felt lettering, Charlie Hustle’s infamous #14 number on back.
Retail is set at $200 USD.
Very limited quantities.
