HOFer Derek Jeter

One area of my collection I want to build upon this year is the HOF project whereby I get the final Topps card of players in the Hall of Fame. Why? I've already said but since you probably don't remember, I think it's great to see the players career statistics on the card. I guess I should say their largely traditional stats to acknowledge the existence of other stats. Anyway, Topps doesn't always include the players final year, but that's ok.

I pre-emptively acquired Derek Jeter's final Topps card from 2015 because I figured he was a sure thing when it comes to HOF voting. I wanted to get it for .18 cents before the price went up to .19 cents.

This is probably one of the happiest baseball cards you could own. The things I like best about it are tied together: that he's in his home pinstripes and as such, at a game at Yankee Stadium.


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I haven't collected Jeter in many years. I did add this card to his collection though. It's simply grand!

  2. Nicely done, and way to get in before the big price hike.

    1. You ain't kiddin'! That one will either be painful to purchase or do so reluctantly.
