If you are seeking the earliest Derek Jeter certified autograph card—and when we say earliest, we mean Kalamazoo Central High Class of 1992 early—you have three options: a Little Sun High School Prospects card, a Classic 4 Sport card, or a Front Row Draft Picks card. Although the Little Sun issue is the rarest of the trio, when it comes to condition sensitivity, the 1992 Front Row autographed card cannot be topped. With its delicate all-blue borders which are especially prone to chipping, it comes as no surprise to seasoned collectors that not a single PSA 10 Gem Mint copy of this treasured cardboard relic has ever been uncovered.

In fact, offered here is just the second PSA 9 Mint example of this Jeter classic ever brokered by Small Traditions. The first sold for the relative bargain price of $763 back in June 2014—a time before the sports rookie card market experienced its incredible and explosive growth of recent years, which has seen most of the highest-graded iconic rookie cards rise between as much as 500% to even 1,000%. Inked in blue felt-tip marker by the New York Yankees' first-round pick of the 1992 MLB June Amateur Draft, this near-perfect specimen exhibits four sharp corners, brilliant colors, and on-point centering. Although many authentic examples of this card were not serial numbered, this one was, and bears Front Row's authentication sticker with the number "88 of 500" penned on the reverse. This card comes with impeccable provenance, hailing from the #1 all-time finest Derek Jeter Master Set on the PSA Set Registry. It is truly an investment piece worth holding on to for years, if not decades, to come.
