Photo and autograph courtesy of my entirely autographed 1987 Fleer set.
Happy 70th birthday to disgraced baseball star Pete Rose. “Charlie Hustle” is the all time major league baseball hits leader with 4,256. There was no question that he’d be inducted into the baseball hall of fame, but then it was discovered that he was betting on baseball, including claims that he bet on his own team (when he was the manager of the Reds!) As he’ll never be eligible for induction into the hall, Rose fills his time charging money for his autograph in vile places like Las Vegas. So sad.
Pete Rose in Vegas
For the record, I always got his autograph for free back in his playing days.

Happy Birthday, Elvis Presely. Yes, I know he’s dead, but when in the hell will I get the chance to post this photo of Elvis that I took when I was recently in Las Vegas? So how will you celebrate this day? Tell us which Elvis songs are your favorites. Do you like the vintage years, the come-back era or the puffy pill Elvis?

If you are in the Vegas area, you’ll want to stop by the Crazy Horse and check out Carmen Electra.� The show has a limited run, so you need to act fast. You can read more about the show here. If you love Carmen’s logo as much as I do, you can read more about the designer, Amy Norris, on her official website.
Below is photo of a vintage Carmen Electra autographed cd single (remember those?) from the G archives. Enjoy!
