Derek Jeter plans to retire after 2014 — what’s next for his baseball cards?
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will retire after the 2014 season.
It will be his 20th big-league season in a career that includes five World Series rings, 3,316 hits and countless highlight-reel moments.
As he nears his 40th birthday this season, the Yankees captain will surely appear on many more baseball cards atop his 14,343 already available that sell for more than $366,000 excluding rarities.
Will there be added interest in his Rookie Cards from 1993? Will he ever sign another certified autograph card? Will Steiner Sports ready a farewell memorabilia line? Will Topps create commemorative cards all season long?
There will be answers to some of these soon, but first we want to know what you think comes next for his cardboard as a retirement season awaits. Tell us in the comments and with our set of Your Turn polls after the jump.
