A Jeter rookie card was sold Friday for a modern day record for baseball cards at $99,100.00.
According to ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell, a buyer identified as Adrian Proietti bid the winning amount on eBay through an auction overseen by PWCC.
The 1993 Upper Deck SP, which features a foil design, is reportedly a perfect 10 on the PSA/DNA grading scale. According to Reports, there are only 22 of those specific Jeter rookie cards that have received a grade of 10.
The card is one of several high-profile collectibles that have fetched close to or more than six figures over the past two years.
In October 2016, a LeBron James Upper Deck rookie card set a modern-day record, regardless of sport, when it sold for $312,000. The card includes the stitched NBA logo from LeBron’s jersey at a photo shoot.
