So he did it. Derek Jeter got to 3,000 hits - in such a grand fashion.
No need to flush out the post.
Here are my two favorite Jeter cards in my collection:
Look at the date on the cards ... look closely. The Fleer Tradition cards commemorated a Day in History for the this player. On these two cards, Fleer just happened to pick July 11.
Again. July 11.
That's my birthday. Two pretty cool cards with my favorite player and my birthday.
