2010 Topps Heritage ‘Core Four’ Starring Pettitte, Posada, Jeter, and Rivera
In November of 2009, I wrote a post on this blog titled ‘Ranking The Yankees Core Four’. You can read that here.
This card of the ‘Core Four’ came out a year later as part of the 2012 Topps Heritage set.
And now, almost three seasons later, a lot has changed.
Posada has retired.
Pettitte has retired. And un-retired.
Rivera suffered a crippling injury and is doing rehab with the hopes of a 2013 comeback.
Jeter has gotten better. Much better!
So, after reviewing my original story, I know that my rankings of 3 and 4 would not change. But as for the #1 spot, it is hard to not re-think that. Jeter has been on a tear since capturing his 3,000th hit and his legend only continues to grow. And sadly, Mariano Rivera has been unable to compete.
I may have to officially switch 1 & 2.
What do you think??
