If you watched the MLB All-Star Game last week, you might have heard a word or two about this guy Derek Jeter. He plays shortstop for the Yankees, apparently. I guess he's retiring after this season or something. Oh, and Adam Wainwright served him up a couple of meatballs at the beginning of the game, so if the Cardinals lose the Series in 7 this year you can blame him for allowing Derek Jeter to get a double and thus losing home field advantage for the NL.
Anyway, I may be a Red Sox fan but I don't discriminate against the Yankees when it comes to my collection. In fact, as a fan of baseball I can appreciate that they are one of, if not the, most significant franchises in baseball history. I decided that after all these years watching him play (pretty frequently too, as a fan of another AL East team), it was high time to add a Jeter rookie card to my collection. Here's what I ended up with:
