    2000 Derek Jeter World Series Game Used & Signed Bat, PSA/DNA GU 10. The loss of two-thirds of its Major League teams after the 1957 season brought a sudden end to New York City's Subway Series phenomenon, when the entirety of the Fall Classic was available to Big Apple straphangers. But after more than four decades of waiting, the New York Yankees and Mets claimed the pennants of their respective leagues in 2000 and faced off for the fourteenth edition of the Subway Series, and, to this day, the last.

    Only those living and working in the city at that time could truly appreciate the enormity of the stakes, each half of the city thrilled and terrified at the prospect of being the tormentors or the tormented as friends, family and coworkers huddled with their respective tribes. For those six days in late October of 2000, there was no other thought on the minds of the city's eight million residents.

    It took five games for the reigning World Champions to complete the defense, claiming its third World Series in four years and cementing its status as the last, great New York Yankees dynasty. And when the stakes were highest, the spotlight hottest, it was Derek Jeter who claimed the honor of 2000 World Series MVP.

    The experts at PSA/DNA have been able to assign his signature model Louisville Slugger P72 to the 2000 World Series by the gold paint transfers that decorate the barrel, and to the first two games by the "cut-out" version of the MLB logo on the barrel. After the bat was cracked, Jeter transitioned to a "filled" MLB logo. PSA/DNA writes, "The imagery did not permit a distinctive photo match, but the appearance of gold ink impressions, from the special gold imprinted Official World Series baseballs, and the similarity in the heavy Mota/Grip Stick application to the handle, in our opinion, convey the used of the bat by Jeter in games 1 & 2. of the 2000 Subway Series."

    One need only refer to the superstar shortstop's stat line to understand the reason for the MVP nod, as he'd bat .409 with two doubles, a triple and two homers, accounting for six of the nineteen Yankee runs scored in the tense five-game Series. Though Jeter was always a clutch postseason player, the 2000 World Series would provide his only MVP Award, a fact that establishes this bat as one of the most desirable from the Captain's full arsenal.

    The bat exhibits use characterized as "outstanding" by the experts at PSA/DNA, who note those golden ball marks, stitch impressions, cleat marks, a weighted donut impression, and the aforementioned thick Mota stick on the cracked and professionally repaired handle. Length and weight are thirty-four inches (34") and thirty-two ounces (32.1 oz.), each consistent throughout Jeter's Hall of Fame career. A silver sharpie signature on the barrel (9/10) completes this spectacular package. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph).
