Baseball card fans have long awaited a player to have the same pull as the retired Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter. The wait is finally over as artist Mark Martin has designed a card set that celebrates Jeter's career.

Card

Over the course of his 20-year MLB career, Derek Jeter became one of the game's most beloved players. While his career numbers are worthy of Cooperstown, it's his persona and championship pedigree that has made Jeter the all-time great that he is. Wearing the Yankee pinstripes for his entire career doesn't hurt either. That popularity has transferred over to the collecting world as well. Derek Jeter cards remain among the most popular in the hobby. Yet, with licensing and a revolving door of card manufacturers and brands, only one set has captured his career from start to finish—Topps.

Topps

Outside of his rookie card, the most memorable Derek Jeter Topps card, at least from the flagship set, is from 2007. With crudely Photoshopped images of Mickey Mantle and President George W. Bush added, the card created mainstream buzz when it first arrived. Although a common card and not a short print, it still commands a premium over other Derek Jeter base cards.

Since his rookie card, Topps has included Jeter in all of their base sets throughout his playing days. Besides basic player cards, he has also had plenty of subset cards like All-Stars, League Leaders, Highlights and World Series. On top of those, there are literally thousands of inserts and Topps Derek Jeter cards from other brands. (Source: www.cardboardconnection.com)
