If I were in the market for cards, I would definitely put Rose on my list.

I look at it as, many of these athletes are not MIT scholars. The same aggression that makes them great athletes and couple it with fans and leeches fawning on them and many are making more money per year than the rest of their family together makes in a lifetime, it can breed conditions for trouble.
We need to seperate the sports from the morals. These are guys (and gals) playing a game, thats it. They shouldn't be held up as any kind of role model. Its great when some do good things with their fame and fortune but thats what they should be commended for not because they are a sports star.When they do wrong, lock em up.
Ty Cobb was no saint but his extracurriculars don't haunt him.
There are so many role players that make the superstars great, that will never be in the hall of fame. I think thats a bigger shame. Hang Rose's picture in the HoF and stick an asterisk next to his stats and call him a dog.
