An iconic card for this generation’s Yankee dynasty

While digging through my boxes the other day looking for stuff to sell, I came across this card, which struck me as being a pretty neat, affordable collectible. It’s a relatively worthless 2010 Topps Heritage card, but it essentially encapsulates the greatness of the last 15 years of the Yankees. Whether you love the Yanks or hate them, there is no denying that Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte were the faces of excellence for many years.

In another time and era of this hobby, a card like this would be in high demand. Nowadays, cards like these — even though they are awesome — are worth almost nothing because they don’t contain game-used fabric or signatures of the men pictured on them.
