Frequently in the hobby today, the term "white whale" is used to describe a long sought-after card that has forever eluded a collector. That phrase certainly can be applied to the offered 2000 Stadium Club Chrome First Day Issue Refractor of New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter, as collectors of the Captain are right this minute sharpening their harpoons. (And by Captain, we mean Jeter, not Ahab!) Hailing from the Yankee Championship Years (1996-2000), the second-most important period for seekers of Jeter's cardboard, this chromium stunner combines two of the most famous and hotly pursued parallel sets from the 1990s—Refractors and First Day Issues—into one.

Produced during an era when overall production was much higher than it is for the products of today, this card of Gotham's superb shortstop is serial numbered 23/25, an incredibly low print run for any insert or parallel card at the dawn of the new millennium. Graded Mint 9 by PSA, and with only one other specimen equaling its grade—and none surpassing it, at any grading company—this Jeter issue is undoubtedly near the top of want lists of dozens of DJ collectors throughout America and the world. If you are looking for a gorgeous and rare card of the Captain to reel in to your portfolio (or Derek Jeter Master Registry Set) it's time to set sail towards this auction. As you know, true white whales only come around once in a blue moon. Do not let this one swim away.
