    Thanks guys for the comments, pretty cool!
    With how popular Jeter is right now I could see an MLB authenticated home run ball selling for over $2000. Maybe 3K. Authenticated home run balls are very, very rare and Jeter only hit 258. They didn't even have the MLB authentication system in 1999.

    Yea, I could agree with you here when it comes to his popularity and also that he didn't hit as many HRs as other big HR hitter players.

    That ball is from his 200th home run game, it's not the actual home run.

    Good catch. I finally had to go looking for it myself to see and you're right but it's unclear from the title... sneaky!

    Here is the eBay link, everyone should see this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Albert-Pujol...item4ad6441a66

    That ball is dirty and scuffed as hell for a game ball. Looks like it was used for batting or fielding practice.
    Nowadays, they switch out balls every few pitches, but I guess MLB was cheaper 15 years ago.

    [MENTION=1900]Austin[/MENTION] - Yea, I don't have a real good response to that other than what [MENTION=11284]Bootstraps9[/MENTION] said. I can tell you it's the ball though lol... I'll watch the video again tonight and see if the ball was used for the entire AB or what the deal was, I don't know lol.
