Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Of the 16,279 Derek Jeter rookie cards submitted to PSA from the 1993 Upper Deck SP Foil set, only twenty-two have been assigned this top grade of GEM MINT. This is the ultimate high-grade example of future Hall of Fame member Derek Jeter. Jeter is featured as a key rookie card in a number of different issues from 1993, but the offered example is one of his most popular. The card is flawless in every way! One of the toughest modern classics to obtain in high grade, the delicate foil surface is free of any scratches or wear. The corners are perfectly square. The reverse is clean. This is a truly GEM MINT example of this important card. Derek Jeter is the greatest shortstop in New York Yankees history and one of the few players to be honored with the title of "Captain." During Jeter's celebrated twenty seasons in New York, the Yankees won eight pennants and six World Championships. Like Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle before him, Jeter personifies the most recent Yankees dynasty, and it seems assured that he will soon join those other Yankees immortals in Cooperstown. This is an extremely desirable ultra high-grade rookie card of Derek Jeter from one of his most significant rookie-year issues. Reserve $25,000. Estimate $50,000+.
