So I am sitting on a handfull of early year 93-97 Derek Jeter cards...wanted to get some thoughts on what the value increases might be when he gets to 3000 hits...

Would there be a dramatic rise, or maybe a slight one... considering he will be the only Yankee in history with over 3000 his...

Im not a yankees fan, so i could care less...just wondering about the overall values... and whether or not I should hold onto them for my unborn son, or just dump them at their highest value come 3000 hits.

I typically rate the value of baseball cards by checking eBay. I know that's probably not the best way, but you can get a good idea about the kind of offers you might receive.

Plus, Jeter became a bonafide, first ballot hall-of-famer a few years ago, so I'm not sure the 3000 hit milestone boosted his playing cards' value too much.

ebay isn't the place for price information that it was a few years ago imo, there are specialized card sites that are much more accurate.

As for Jeter rookie cards their value peaked in the days before and after his 3000th hit. Its best to sell when there is hype. It's also best to sell just before they retire. Early baseball cards will only gain in value but the divide between early and current grows every year and those cards are less rare and harder to sell to someone who never saw him play.

My nephew asked me who Cal Ripkin was last year, it made me shake my head. he had looked up the iron man movie on Google and wondered why Cal showed up...
