OK, Maybe THIS is the ugliest $1,000 rookie card?

1963 Topps Pete Rose rookie card

Yesterday I made fun of my recently acquired 1952 Topps Hoyt Wilhelm, calling it the ugliest $1,000 book value rookie card I’ve ever seen.

I mean seriously, a high-dollar rookie card showing a guy with his eyes closed? Ugh …

And then a commenter reminded me of this ugliness.

Floating heads galore!

Make no bones about it, the 1963 Topps Pete Rose rookie is an important card no matter how many other unimportant heads are floating around his dome. Hall of Fame or not, the card is a must own.

But this is one ugly duckling! It just looks like a  bingo card, some kid’s potty chart, or a square Lego block that has been decorated with little faces.

But this begs the question … which of the two is worse?  And is there another $1,000 high book value rookie card we should add into this little debate?
