Although 2012 was his 18th season in the Majors, Derek Jeter played like it was 1999 again. The Captain batted over .400 for the first half of the season and passed Mickey Mantle for most All-Star hits as A Yankee when he recorded his 11th base hit in the mid-summer classic. He finished out 2012 by leading both leagues in hits (216) and passed Willie Mays to advance to number 10 on the career base hits leaders list. 

Jeter led the Yankees in batting average at .312 and he propelled New York to the American League Eastern Division title. Jeter and the Yankees faced off with division rival Baltimore in the ALDS and Jeter used this Louisville Slugger P72 during Games 1-4, where the two teams split. Jeter collected six playoff hits using this bat, including a triple prior to it being cracked in the bottom of the third inning of Game 4. As you would expect from a Derek Jeter gamer, this bat displays outstanding use with a broken handle that has been secured. The barrel is covered with ball marks, white leather scuffs, blue ink transfers and ball stitch impressions. There is a moderate coating of Mota Stick on the handle and cleat marks are also present on the barrel. The date of manufacture (09/25/12) along with the length/weight (34.0/32.0) is stamped on the knob.

This is a terrific game used Derek Jeter bat and to-date, the last known game used Derek Jeter playoff bat to hit the market. Jeter has signed this bat in bold silver marker, inscribing “The Captain” below his name. This gamer comes with impeccable provenance and authentication as a LOA from “The Captain” accompanies this bat. In addition, this bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B07154), who have photo matched this bat to Games 1-4 of the 2012 ALDS and graded this bat a near-perfect GU 9. There is also a COA from Steiner Sports and a LOA from PSA/DNA for Jeter's signature. Jeter was known for the post-season, accumulating an incredible 200 playoff hits in his career. Here is your chance to get the bat that produced six of them and will, in all likelihood, go down as the last postseason used bat from The Yankee Captain.
