Goldin Auctions Selling Pete Rose, MLB Pact

Pete Rose has signed hundreds of thousands of autographs in his life. But there’s no doubt this is the most significant one. It’s his full name “Peter Edward Rose” signed on Aug. 23, 1989, on the last page of a five-page document, along with the signatures of then commissioner A. Bart Giamatti and deputy commissioner Fay Vincent, detailing his banishment from baseball. Twenty-three years later, it’s hitting the auction block. An auctioneer says he thinks a Pete Rose-signed contract with MLB detailing his banishment is worth more than the highest price ever paid for a baseball document.

“I feel this is the most important document in baseball history,” said Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions, which is auctioning the document beginning on Oct. 10. A reserve price has not been set for the auction, but Goldin says he thinks it’s worth more than the highest price ever paid for a baseball document — the $996,000 paid in 2005 for the 1919 contract that sent Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees.
