As the sun sets on the career of Derek Jeter, many have come forward to honor the Captain. Fans and collectors can also pay homage to the Yankee great with a plethora of Derek Jeter collectibles and gear. The RE2PECT Collection from the Jordan wing of Nike is one such option and features a clothing and shoe line devoted to the final season for Derek Jeter.
Centered around the "RE2PECT" tagline, the reverence for Derek Jeter is on full display in an ad that can be seen below.
Derek Jeter has been with the Jordan brand for many years and even has his own signature shoe line. Although baseball signature shoes are not in the same league with collectors as their basketball contemporaries, Derek Jeter was one of the first MLB superstars to maintain a consistent presence in the sneaker world.

In addition to many various RE2PECT shirts and hats, the biggest draw appears to be the limited shoe lines created for the collection. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High Jeter and Flight Flex Trainer Jeter are commanding considerable interest from collectors. Both shoes take design inspiration from the classic New York Yankees uniform, complete with pinstripes and a Midnight Navy color scheme. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High Jeter was available for $160 at retail, but has since doubled and even tripled in price on the secondary market. Likewise, the Jordan Flight Flex Trainer Jeter has seen sales of $200+ after debuting with a $120 price tag. Both appear to be sold out through traditional retailers, but may still be available in stores.
