Pete Rose - First Card in Phillies Uniform

I grew up in south Jersey, so my first impressions and visions of Pete Rose are different than most Pete Rose fans. I saw him first as a Philadelphia Phillies player.

My first impressions were him spiking the ball on the Veterans Stadium turf and taking a talented Phillies team over the hump in 1980.

I picked up this 1979 Topps card this year. If I remember reading the Beckett article correctly, this is the first card that had Pete in a Phillies uniform.
