He may never make it to the Hall of Fame, but Pete Rose just wrapped up a real estate transaction worthy of a plaque ... selling his home for a $1 MILLION PROFIT!!!

TMZ Sports has learned ... Charlie Hustle just sold his 5-bedroom home in Sherman Oaks, CA for a cool $1.9 million ... which is great news for the ex-MLBer who bought the place for $913k in '99.

No word on why Rose decided to part ways with the crib -- it's a pretty cool spot (pool, palm trees, office, bbq area) ... but he does spend a lot of time in Vegas these days. 

Still pretty far from Cooperstown.

He sure does spend a lot of time in Vegas. You can find him every day sitting in a mall store signing autographs for 4-5 hours a day. He's been doing that for years now.

Remember the Black Sox. No Hall of Fame for Pete until after he passes.

The house is lovely. The price seems low for that area.

The hall of fame is just a building with baseball stuff in it without the hit king Pete Rose

God bless Pete Rose. He's been proven to be a cheat, disgraced himself from the game he loved, went down for tax evasion, gets hot women to be with him in spite of the fact that he is UGLY as hell and then sells his home for a million dollar profit. Amazing.

A million dollars over 15 years is NOT a good return for real estate that was a mil to begin with. The average $300k home in Detroit or Milwaukee or Waco would not double but the neighborhood of the home he sold would easily bring that much.
This area has a space crunch and a 1100 sq ft. 2BR home can go for $2.5M easy. Location, location, location.

If at any point Barry Bonds gets inducted to HOF, then Pete Rose MUST also be inducted.

Now if he can just keep from gambling all of this away. A truly great ball player, but just can't shake the addiction.

There's others like Cepeda(from my born land) & Jenkins w/ serious problems.. do I need to mention them?? Aren't they in THoF?? I hope the new commissioner shows more compassion and consider that PETE ROSE's stadistics are over , are a lot better than some others in THoF.. I ask GOD to enlighten his mind and other memebers of his cabinet so they can be moved in the right direction which is GET PETE IN THE HALL of FAME.. BLESSINGS
