Pair of limited-edition Derek Jeter signed wall displays issued by Steiner Sports. These unique displays, of which only two were signed by Jeter, commemorate one of the most memorable plays made by Jeter during his long and storied career. The affixed nameplate at the base of each display aptly describes the scene: 

On July 1, 2004, Derek Jeter dove into the stands to make a catch in the top of the 12th inning against the Red Sox in what became known as one of the best examples of sacrificing your body for the win in baseball history. Jeter walked away with a bloody chin but, the Yankees would go on to win 5-4 after scoring two runs in the bottom of the 13th inning.

To commemorate that event, Jeter has signed a section of the blue padding (approximately 4x3") that lines the walls around the Yankee Stadium playing field. Each of the signed wall sections has been flawlessly signed by Jeter in silver paint pen (grading 10/10) and has been mounted within the center of a 20x16" color print capturing Jeter diving into the stands on July 1st. The prints are each hand-numbered in the lower right corner, with one bearing the limitation number "1/2" and the other "2/2." Each of the Jeter signed pieces displays affixed hologram labels from MLB and Steiner Sports. Both pieces are also accompanied by a corresponding COA from Steiner Sports. The prints are in apparent Mint condition and have been individually matted and framed to total dimensions of 28.5x24.5". Please note: the size and/or weight of this lot will necessitate an increased shipping charge.
