    1992 Derek Jeter High School All-Star Game Signed Baseball--One of His First After Signing with Yankees! We'll let the charming and detailed letter of provenance from our consignor tell the tale of this special sphere:

    "In the spring/summer of 1992, I was given an 'opportunity of a lifetime' that any 10 year old little leaguer himself could only dream of. My uncle was the head coach of the high school varsity baseball team at the time, and was selected as a coach for the Annual M.H.S.B.C.A. East-West All-Star Baseball Classic held at Detroit Tier Stadium. Much to my delight, after being selected as coach, my uncle asked me if I'd like to be the batboy for the game. By this time, Derek Jeter had already signed with the New York Yankees. Even though he had already been signed to play in the big leagues, Jeter still wanted to play in the all-star game for his senior year of high school, and they (The Yankees) allowed him to. Not only would I get to see the dugout, locker rooms, and be on the field of my favorite Major League team, but I get to meet and be the batboy for who would become one of the greatest to ever play the game! After the game, I was gifted this team signed ball as a souvenir. I've decided after 28 years that it's time to 'pass it on' to the next person to add to their collection."

    Due to his emerging star power, Jeter earned sweet spot honors on this "Official Ball NCAA Championship" model, the autograph appearing in the very early format Jeter would abandon shortly after his Major League debut. It rates 9/10, joined by a couple dozen fellow players in similar strength. A handwritten notation on the side panel (not in Jeter's hand) identifies the event. Ball is clean and white. Letter of provenance from original recipient. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
