    2011 Derek Jeter 3,000th Hit Game Used Base. "If I would have tried to have written it and given it to someone, I wouldn't have even bought it, to be honest with you." Even Derek Jeter himself, a five-time World Champion, a guaranteed first-ballot Hall of Famer and boyfriend of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model, acknowledged that the events of July 9, 2011 were too good to be true. Five-for-five (the first at the new Yankee Stadium). A home run for number 3,000 (and the guy who caught the ball gave it back!). And, finally, a game-winning RBI single in the eighth inning right past the base presented here, planted at second during that historic at-bat.

    A perfect top of the ninth for fellow future Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera followed, and one of the most memorable days in modern Yankees history was complete, with this base later presented to The Captain for signing, Jeter adding, "3000th hit 7-9-11" to his 9/10 black sharpie signature. It's one of the most significant relics from that astounding day in the Bronx ever to surface on the auction circuit, a relic that almost certainly will see a healthy value bump when the doors of Cooperstown swing wide for the all-time Yankee great in 2020. MLB Authentic FJ493988. Steiner Sports 182596. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
