Simple question, what is a legit Derek Jeter caught HR ball worth today if sold on eBay or elsewhere? Looking for rough guess or thoughts on value.
Obviously I know this will come with a zillion comments and stuff about no chance it is legit or it is fake or who knows if anything is real or there are so many fakes, etc. but I really want to keep the discussion to what people think it might fetch if one was sold.
Back story? Sure........
I caught Derek Jeter's 68th HR ball in Cleveland on September 19, 1999. I have always just kept it in a case in my office and it is a personal memento, never really thought about selling and am not really thinking of it now but someone asked me what I thought it was worth or what I could fetch for it. I said I had no idea LOL.
"How do we know it is Legit?"
Fair question, I do not have any sort of COA or anything. I was interviewed by a NY reporter after I caught it but I don't have a copy of that article and couldn't tell you much more than that but if I did that would probably be the best piece of "evidence" there is. I do have my ticket stub and Jacob's Field (at the time) sent me the video footage from the game and me catching the ball which I have on DVD. I could easily write a letter detailing the event and get those with me to do the same and get everything notarized but not sure that is helpful.
Anyways, anyone have a thought on what it would fetch in the perfect world?
