The 2014 baseball season will mark the end of the illustrious career of Derek Jeter, one of the all-time greatest players in MLB history. When the Yankees drafted Jeter in 1992, they had no clue that he would become the face of their franchise over the course of the next two decades. Jeter has played an integral role in the resurgence of the franchise, leading to the team to five world championships (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2009) and becoming the organization's all-time career leader in hits, games played, stolen bases and at-bats.
Known for delivering clutch performances in key situations, Jeter is one of the most beloved athletes in baseball history. With highlights like his "flip" play in the 2001 ALDS, the "Mr. November" home run and his headfirst dive into the stands in 2004 to his credit, Jeter has left a lasting impression on the game and its many fans.
McFarlane Toys knew we had to do something to honor the Captain's long and storied career, so why not a sweet box set, which includes 2 figures: the iconic hitting Jeter (in a never released grey uniform), and the trademark fielding Jeter (in his home pinstripes). We also decided to throw in a LOT of hardware too - five Championship trophies and five Silver Slugger bats! With the inclusion of the special Derek Jeter Retirement logo, this box set becomes a must have!
