    1996 Derek Jeter Signed "Rookie of the Year" Commemorative Bat. There's something about nearing the end that makes us nostalgic for the beginning. Though "The Captain" has not yet hung up his spikes, the plague of injuries that has limited his 2013 playing time to near non-existence is a clear indicator of his impending and inevitable baseball mortality. But he was just a twenty-two year old kid bursting with potential when he signed this limited edition (437/500) bat commemorating his recognition as the 1996 American League Rookie of the Year. His 9+/10 silver sharpie autograph is notated "ROY" on lumber essentially identical to that which he made his early mark, but for engraving that recounts those impressive debut stats. Bat measures thirty-four inches in length. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
