Default is Pete Rose giving the finger

I don't know if this is old news, but I was going through some old sets and noticed that the Fleer 1981 set, card #645 titled "Triple Threat" and showing Schmidt, Rose and Bowa appears to show Rose with his middle finger outside the glove. As I said, was everyone aware of this except me - or worse, did I know and simply forgot (more and more likely every day).

Nope, index. Common with 1B players.

This is a middle finger:

That's what I thought initially and I guess it's possible his hand is covering his little finger. But I couldn't see any view of a white glove under his hand. But I agree, Billy is certainly having fun with the photographer.

Kills me to say this because I have very hard feelings against Rose, but I will give him credit where it's due - I don't think he would have done something like that, certainly not intentionally. Billy Martin? No doubt.
