Derek Jeter Baseball Cards and Memorabilia Buying Guide

Rookie Cards

Chicks may dig the long ball but they also like good looking players on Championship-winning teams. Enter Derek Jeter. The collectibles market for the New York Yankees legend is like none other. Being the captain of multiple World Series winning teams, Derek Jeter cards and memorabilia are among the most popular of all modern players. From trading cards to autographed material, game-used items, figures and other collectibles, Derek Jeter items are a safe investment.

Jeter has rookie cards in eight mainstream 1993 sets, most of which are reasonably priced due to their high print runs. He also has a handful of highly desirable Minor League cards: 1992 Classic Four-Sport Autograph (/1125), 1992 Front Row Draft Picks Autograph (print run of 500) and 1992 Little Sun High School Prospects Autographs (print run of 250).

Derek Jeter Rookie Card Guide

1993 Bowman Derek Jeter RC #511

Jeter's 1993 Bowman Baseball is a solid mid-range pick, largely due to the brand's acceptance as a rookie card product. The shortstop is pictured in a Yankees T-shirt ready to field during a practice or warm-up.

1993 Pinnacle Derek Jeter RC #457

This is a great-looking card that is somewhat condition sensitive due to its black borders. Part of the "1st Round Draft Pick" subset, Jeter is shown from the chest up with a bat over his shoulder. His Yankee pinstripes blend in with the dark design of the card.

1993 Score Derek Jeter RC #489

One of the least desirable Jeter rookie cards, it's also the ugliest. Don't blame the Yankee, though, as he wasn't the one who decided the mix of horizontal and vertical bars and blocks was a good idea. Jeter tries to spice the "First Round Draft Pick" card up with a cocky smirk on his picture on the back of the card.

1993 Select Derek Jeter RC #360

It appears as though Jeter is jumping on a trampoline in this card. Definitely one of the more fun entries in Jeter's rookie portfolio, the 1993 Select card is a solid low- to mid-end option.

1993 SP Derek Jeter RC #279

The Jeter rookie to own for those who can afford it, the 1993 SP foil cards are extremely condition sensitive. As a result, graded mint and gem mint copies of the card carry a huge price tag. Not only is this the most iconic baseball card of 1993, it's one of the most recognizable of the decade.

1993 Stadium Club Murphy Derek Jeter RC #117

Although the card carries the 1992 Stadium Club design and markings, it was released in 1993 and is treated as such. It carries a full-bleed photo of a scrawny Jeter posing at the park in a faux batting stance. This card has seen a fair amount of upward movement in recent months, perhaps because the card was only available in a factory set that's seen as somewhat of an oddball release.

1993 Topps Derek Jeter RC #98

The flagship Topps set is generally regarded as a wise choice for those looking for a cheaper rookie card option. As long as Topps keeps recycling images, this card will stay in the forefront for collectors, whether they like it or not. A part of the "1992 Draft Pick" subset, Jeter is shown throwing. The background is an overhead graphic of a baseball diamond. It's nothing fancy, but it works. A Gold parallel is also available.

1993 Upper Deck Derek Jeter RC #449

Another good option in the low- to mid-range is Jeter's 1993 Upper Deck rookie card. Included in the "1992 Top Prospects" subset, the card offers a little more glossy shine that its Topps counterpart. The full-bleed photo of Jeter reaching for a fly ball is one of the better pictures featured on Jeter's first cards. Collectors may also want to be on the watch for a gold hologram variation. In each case of 20 factory sets, one included gold holograms on the card backs and not the standard silver hologram. The difference is slight but it offers a great chase element to the Jeter rookie card chase.

Fan Shop

Derek Jeter Fan Shop Apparel and Souvenir Guide

Derek Jeter's wide ranging appeal isn't limited strictly to collectors. From casual fans to die-hard season ticket holders, there is something for everyone. The fact that Derek Jeter has spent his entire career as a Yankee makes it easy decide on the jersey, apparel or souvenir that's right for the Yankee fan on your list.

Jerseys and Apparel

Manufacturers: Majestic

Majestic has been the longtime provider of official jerseys for Major League Baseball. While other companies, like Nike and Adidas, have produced Yankee jerseys bearing Derek Jeter's name and number, they simply aren't the real deal. If you want an officially licensed replica or authentic game jersey, Majestic is the company you want.

Available in three different styles; official Batting Practice, Replica and Authentic, the Replic and Authentic jerseys come in both home and road versions. Each Majestic jersey features full twill lettering and numbering, woven laundry tag, washable hologram and MLB silhouette logo patch. The Batting Practice jersey is made of a lightweight, moisture wicking polyester and is ideal for everyday wear. The Replica jersey is perfect for any occasion and is tailored of a heavier weight polyester blend fabric, and designed with all the team and player specific details without the cost. The  Authentic On-Field jersey is designed with on-field use in mind. When you wear this jersey, you are wearing the same design worn by the pros. From the double-knit fabric and authentic MLB decoration down to the detail of the authentic locker tag, you are wearing the original.

Official MLB caps are provided by New Era and feature the same benefits as the ones the pros wear. All Authentic Game Performance 59Fifty On-Field caps are made with enhanced performance fabric for superior moisture wicking, sweatbands, and black undervisorsto reduce glare.
