Investing In Jeter!!!!

Investing In Jeter!!!!

As much as I love the sport of baseball, I don’t often let my love for today’s game interfere with my desire to primarily collect and honor the great stars of the past.

And for the most part, I am successful with that mission.

Sure, every once in a while I like to tear open a pack of cards to remind me of what that feels like, but I get as much joy from buying a 1983 Topps Super Veteran card of Johnny Bench than others may get from pulling a serial numbered card of Aroldis Chapman.

Still, I appreciate what today’s player brings to the overall history of the game.  For me, the leader that charge is the captain of the New York Yankees, Mr. Derek Jeter!!!

I truly respect the way that Jeter approaches the game.

And that led me to buying one of his 1993 Topps rookie cards.

Thanks for reading – sorry for teasing…

Call me ‘The Prospector + 20’!!!!
