MLB All-Time Hit Leaders - Autographed Baseballs

The Hits Just Keep on Comin'

Whether you are a seasoned baseball memorabilia collector or have just one or two autographed baseballs, it's always cool to own signed items from some of the best baseball players in the history of the MLB.

Often times collectors look for memorabilia items or signed baseballs all from one team, or season or category, such as the leaders in strikeouts, home runs, runs batted in or the MLB All-Time Hit Leaders.

Pete Rose owns the MLB record with 4256 hits.

As a manager of the Cincinnati Reds, Rose gambled on his own team on an almost nightly basis. His indiscretions have caused Bud Selig, the MLB Commissioner, to banish Pete Rose from the Baseball Hall of Fame and have somewhat tarnished his record.

Ty Cobb owns second place with 4189 hits. Currently, the closest active baseball player is Derek Jeter with 2926 who will start the 2011 season 38 years old.
