Derek Jeter rookie card breaks record, sells for nearly $100K

Derek Jeter is still setting records even though his playing days are over.

Jeter’s rookie card sold for $99,100 in an eBay auction Friday, marking the highest price ever paid for a modern-day baseball card.

According to ESPN, Adrian Proietti has been identified as the buyer with the highest bid through an auction overseen by PWCC.

The 1993 Upper Deck SP features a foil design and is a perfect 10 on the PSA/DNA grading scale, adding even more to its value since there are only 22 of those specific Jeter rookie cards that have received a grade of 10 out of 10, ESPN notes.

While the card sets the record for the most paid for a modern-baseball card, it doesn’t quite compare to a couple of the rookie cards auctioned off of NBA and NFL players

If Winston sits three games, or any amount of time, the Buccaneers would be forced to start quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who posted a 2-1 record last season when he was asked to start due to Winston’s shoulder injury.

Behind Fitzpatrick is Ryan Griffin, who now figures to be Tampa Bay’s backup quarterback for the first part of this season.

I like my Karate Hottie nickname. I think it’s catchy. I don’t mind saying that I’m hot. If you want to underestimate your opponent [because of her nickname], for sure, go ahead

I was 10 when I started martial arts. It was a heavy influence on me going into adulthood. It’s really given me a voice. It gave me the confidence I needed to go into the world without shying away. As a kid, I was outgoing, but I also never wanted to make anybody mad. I never spoke out. But martial arts allowed me to stand up for myself when I felt like something wasn’t right or when I felt like I was being taken advantage of.

I absolutely fell in love with Muay Thai in college. We took a trip to Thailand to see family, and that’s when I started exploring it. When I came back, I was going to college and working at Hooters full time. I got the opportunity to be a ring girl, and it was something fun to do and make some extra cash. I remember watching these MMA fights and saying, Hey, I think I’d rather be inside the Octagon than out. One of the fighters — he’s a really big name now in UFC, Donald Cerrone — overheard me and came to my work because they needed another girl for a fight. He left a note for me that said, If you’re serious about training, get your butt in the gym. I haven’t looked back since.
