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.
