Default Thoughts on Derek Jeter material now vs. after his induction into the HOF

Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the current value of Derek Jeter cards now vs. after his induction into the Hall, especially his rookie cards and early rare cards. They have risen a great deal in value over the years, but have they maxed out? It kind of seems hard to beleive that his material will rise much more in value after his induction.

I think his card values are at their peak right now. Over the next couple years I would expect his RC and other top end items to hold their value but will probably see a slight dip on some of items in their value. With modern players there is simply so much volume of product it tends to canabalize itself to some degree. Any dip in the next two years is likely to be erased as his induction gets closer. I dont see a an opportunity for much growth in price though. Among the players and cards of his era he already is in the top tier of market.

They are extremely overpriced based upon the amount of supply in the market, sell em if you got them, I think you could re buy them in a few years much cheaper. Being a Yankee he will always be in demand but I would think this is his peak in regards to price and demand.

Look at the last three Yankee "captains" before Jeter...Mantle, Munson, and most cases, their higher grade (tougher) cards seem to still pull strong prices, and with the two latter (due to excess supply)the prices of their lower grade cards are not as strong as they once were. IMO, the same will hold true for Jeter's tougher cards also.

My only question is, who will the next Yankee captain be???

- High grade SP RC's will continue to rise over time. It's just too difficult to pull a perfect one right from a pack.

- Rare and Low #'d inserts will rise slightly, but will be hit and miss. I've noticed prices for certain "rare" Jeter cards will be all over the board. $200 one sale - $575 the next - $300 the next. He always be the focus of many player collections and the key is having a card multiple buyers need at the same time.

- I think his auto market will level off and might even drop. Plenty out there and he will continue to do Steiner signings for the foreseeable future.
Always looking for rare Tommy Bridges items.

I will guess it goes the same as every other HOFer. Around election time prices will spike. Then it will be near impossible to sell one for a year because everybody just unloaded all the cards they have been saving hoping to get in on the short price spike. Then they will slowly start selling again at a lower price.

I only have whatever Jeter cards appeared in the regular Topps sets and in their Heritage sets, and have never seen the regular Topps cards because they are still in factory boxes. Up to 94 I have all the Topps sets in binders, but gave up after that and just bought sets to keep the run going. I do have all the Heritage sets in binders. I guess I won't be able to increase my retirement income on Jeter cards

with modern HOF/All Star players, the typical cycle for changes in their card (mainly higher end rookie cards) values goes as follows

-if they are a top prospect, the value of their cards are high as they move up and make their mlb debut
-unless they do what mike trout/harper/strasburg did after their debuts, you should see their cards regress downwards, even if they have initial success in the majors
-card values remain fairly steady throughout their careers - peaking only if they break records/reach milestones.
-lead up to retirement and post retirement, you'll see a spike in their cards
-card values remain steady until a spike leading up to and post HOF induction. the value regresses back down thereafter.

i think jeter rookies might regress downwards a bit in retirement just because there has been so much hype around it, but move back up once he gets in the Hall.

I haven't paid much attention to pricing the last several years, but the traditional pattern for certain HOFers was a surge in prices up to retirement, a dip over the next 4-5 years since they were out of the spotlight, then another surge from election to sometime after induction.

The better stuff of course will stay better, the common stuff will usually fall off for a few years after induction.

Other than the NY market keeping prices high I don't really see it going any differently.
