The Pete Rose Corked Bat is Nothing Compared to Pleasure Devices and Tuxedos

 - Jun 10, 2010   Updated: Aug 11 2011
A bat used by the baseball player Pete Rose has been revealed as being corked. The Pete Rose corked bat story is now making its way around the Internet, and has inspired this collection of corked creations. From pleasure devices and the 'Corkxedo' to Fendi totes, you can't go wrong with these cork items. I wish someone told Pete Rose that he could use cork for something other than hitting home runs!

Implications - In today's modern world, science and technology provides designers access to a wide range of exotic fabrics and materials. Businesses that incorporate an unusual imported textile into their products will find themselves in a more advantageous position than their competitors. Consumers will likely invest in a product that offers them something that is available in a finte quality.
