Pete Rose -- Major League Baseball's all-time Hit King -- has had his name omitted from the 2013 lineup of Topps baseball cards. Topps owns exclusive rights to produce MLB-licensed trading cards, and representatives called the elimination of Rose's name a "simple decision."

On the back of each baseball card for the 2013 season, Topps is printing a "Career Chase" blurb showing how far each player is from certain milestones and records in hits, runs, or strikeouts. For example, on the back of Paul Konerko's card it says that his 422 career homers are 340 shy of Barry Bonds' record 762. Yet on the back of Starlin Castro's card, Chicago Side Sports shows in scanned photos, it says that his 529 hits are 3,727 shy of the record. But the card doesn't mention who owns the record, the way it does with all the others.
