Derek Jeter’s first Yankees jersey sets modern record


The first jersey Derek Jeter ever wore as a New York Yankee—a road jersey—fetched a record price for a jersey of a modern-day player: $369,000.

The jersey, photo-matched and signed, was auctioned by Goldin Auctions in its 2020 Winter Auction on Saturday night.

It surpassed the previous high of $365,000 for a Mike Piazza post-911 home run jersey.

Also in the auction, a 1994 Derek Jeter game-used Columbus Clippers home jersey fetched $161,130, which was the most ever paid for a baseball minor league jersey. 


It was photo-matched to his August 1, 1994 Triple-A debut and first Triple-A hit.
