A cool story about Mike Trout, Derek Jeter to go with a cool autographed baseball card

Visit our Daily Auctions page to see the latest sports card deals on auction ending daily! And listen to our podcast Cards To The Moon!

So the story goes that Mike Trout once asked for an autograph from Derek Jeter – while standing on second base during a game against each other, according to the article on the Cut4 webpage.

It’s a cooler story knowing that Trout’s baseball idol was Jeter growing up. And like most people would be around their childhood idol, Trout recalls being super nervous when he asked The Captain.

The story ends well, which you can read about from the link above, with Trout receiving what he asked for.

Coincidentally, one collector was able to get a Topps Heritage baseball card signed by both Trout and Jeter, and authenticated. See the card below and click the link to see how much it’s going for.

Definitely a cool addition to add to anyone’s card collection. We’ve added a few more autographed (graded) baseball cards from each player we also really like.
