Derek Jeter's potential has never been in question. Ever since the day the Yankees decided to bring Derek Jeter along (to soon according to some) as their everyday
shortstop. Jeter has done nothing short of paying off completely. By the time he's through with his Major League career, Derek could have a championship ring for each of his 10 fingers and maybe a few of his toes. He played on his fourth World Series winner in 2000, in just his fifth season as the Yankees' shortstop. Away from the field, few players are as popular as Derek Jeter. He's been called "The Prince of New York City," and with his good looks and easy going style, who can say different? Born in New Jersey but raised in Kalamazoo Michigan, Derek always had dreamed of becoming a New York Yankee. He's one of the game's best base runners and has outstanding range in the field. Jeter can steal bases, hit the ball over the fence, hit for average, turn a great double play at second base and sometimes do it all in the same game. At this piont in time Jeter's baseball cards look to be a very good investment.
Baseball Card and Sports Cards collecting tips: A key thing to remember when building your baseball card and other sports cards collections is that the condition of the baseball card, football card, or other sports cards is very important to itís value and the selling price. Baseball cards in lower condition bring far less than those same baseball cards in top shape. Make sure to protect your sports cards with the proper card supplies every time. If you ever think of selling baseball cards, football cards, or other sports cards your top condition cards will always get better prices than sports cards that are not in top condition regardless if they are old or new when you put them up for sale.
There is no right or wrong baseball cards to collect. Many people like Topps baseball cards or Upper Deck baseball cards but there have been many manufacturers over the years and even the ones that are no longer in business anymore like Fleer or Pinnacle are collected by many. Some buy only new sports cards while other buy only old baseball cards. Price, value or what a price guide says a sports card is worth should not be the only or even the main factor in what you buy. The way to have the most fun with the hobby is to collect what you like and how you like and not what someone else says they think you should.
Many hobbiests like to buy baseball cards by the pack or box and get a thrill out of hitting their favorite player or that hard to find card insert, autograph or relic card. Others like to collect baseball card team sets or cards of their home town players and yet others buy factory sets or build sets by hand. Collecting baseball cards, football cards, basketball cards, or any other types of sports trading cards can be a life long hobby that's fun for the whole family. So above all enjoy your hobby.
