Skeptics of Derek Sanderson Jeter's place in baseball history often overlook "The Kalamazoo Kid's" pre-professional baseball accomplishments. In his sophomore year at Kalamazoo Central High, he batted .557, followed by .508 his junior year and then .508 again as a senior, striking out only once. Already a star, he received All-State honorable mention and a heap of impressive national awards, including the 1992 High School Player of the Year Award from the American Baseball Coaches Association, the 1992 Gatorade High School Player of the Year award, and USA Today's High School Player of the Year. A Yankee fan by right of birth, and with Dave Winfield as his childhood idol and an admirable work ethic instilled by his parents and high school teachers, he was well on his way to eventually becoming the 11th New York Yankee Captain and one of the most prolific batsmen in the history of baseball.

Offered here is one of the most colorful and coveted cards relating to Jeter's high school days, the 1992 Little Sun High School Autograph issue, recently graded on behalf of our consignor in the NM 7 grade from PSA. With a print run of only 250 copies made, the 1992 Little Sun Autograph is widely regarded as Derek's best card from his draft year of 1992 and one of his single most important cards of all-time. Feather-light touches to the top-right and bottom-left corners are all that prevent a significantly higher assessment. The card is nearly perfectly centered and features Mint to Gem Mint edges around a Mint surface showcasing a strong autograph penned when the future Hall of Famer was just 18 years-old.
