About Derek Jeter Cleats
On September 28, 2014, and after 20 stellar years as a New York Yankee, shortstop and team captain Derek Jeter finally tipped his cap for the last time. He is a certain first-ballot Hall of Famer, and a pair of Derek Jeter cleats and his number 2 jersey already reside in Cooperstown to commemorate the Yankees' 1998 World Series championship. Derek Jeter game-used gear is heavily in demand following his retirement. These items include his customized cleats, featuring his number 2 on the outside of each heel. Before switching to the Jordan Jeter Lux Metal cleats, he wore the custom Jordan Jeter Legend Elites. To set the Derek Jeter autograph apart from the black baseball cleat, the legendary shortstop signed it in silver permanent marker. When purchasing game-used cleats and other gear, look for items that come with certificates of authenticity. In addition to providing assurance that the items are truly game-worn by Jeter, having the COA on hand helps retain the item's value. These purchases typically include a detailed letter written and signed by Jeter, accompanied by a certificate that often includes a unique bar code and hologram. Some of Jeter's cleats are fairly clean, and others carry a layer of dirt from the ballpark on them. There is a large inventory on eBay of commemorative and signed items by this Yankees great, including game-used Derek Jeter cleats.
