On the heels of Derek Jeter eclipsing Lou Gehrig for the Yankees all-time hits record Sept. 11, Steiner Sports Memorabilia, the industry leader in authentic hand-signed collectibles, will be offering fans a wide array of customized products that celebrate this historic achievement.
Jeter will be autographing balls, photos and jerseys that will include the "2,722" and "9/11/09" engravings. Steiner Sports will also be producing engraved limited edition bats signed by Jeter.
Several items from the Yankees-Steiner Collectibles line will commemorate the record-breaking hit, including the game-used bases and a framed autographed photo with Yankee Stadium dirt affixed to the picture. In addition, fans who attended the game can send their tickets in to be framed in a commemorative collage.
"For over a decade, our exclusive relationship with Derek Jeter has given us the opportunity to offer fans products that celebrate Derek's memorable moments," said Brandon Steiner, founder and CEO of Steiner Sports. "We're pleased to provide mementos that truly capture a milestone in both Derek's career and in Yankees history."
A portion of proceeds on the sale of all Derek Jeter collectibles benefit The Turn 2 Foundation, which creates and supports signature programs and activities that motivate young people to turn away from drugs and alcohol and "Turn 2" healthy lifestyles. Through the years, Steiner Sports has helped to generate nearly $3 million for the foundation.
