Every spring, Little Leaguers across the country mimic his stance and squabble over the right to wear his number, 2, the next number to be retired by the world’s most famous baseball team. Derek Jeter is the modern hero who walks in the footsteps of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle, and someday his shadow will loom just as large. Yet he has never been the best player in baseball. In fact, he hasn’t always been the best player on his team. But his intangible grace, dignified leadership and Jordanesque ability to play big in the biggest of postseason moments make him the face of the modern Yankee dynasty, and of America’s game.

The offered card is far and away Jeter's most valuable and sought after rookie and, in spite of its modern construction, is rarely found in high grade. In fact, nearly 10,000 submissions of Jeter’s 1993 SP Foil rookie card have yielded a miniscule population of 9 GEM MINT 10 examples. You do the math! This extreme rarity showcases chip-free foil and the card appears pack-fresh without so much as a whisper of wear on the corners or edges. The back is equally pristine with no chipping or wear. This modern cardboard treasure, like Jeter himself is a truly rare commodity.
