Upper Deck Throwback Thursday Create the Caption Promotion: Derek Jeter

By

It’s Throwback Thursday so let’s go back through Upper Deck’s trading card history and come up with a fun giveaway. Recently Derek Jeter surprised everyone by announcing on Facebook that 2014 would be his final year. Derek Jeter has served as a spokesman to Upper Deck and a friend over the years so everyone here at headquarters took a moment to reflect after seeing the message on Jeter’s great career, but for us, it all started with his rookie card. And while his 1993 SP Authentic Jeter Rookie card is probably his most beloved card, most people have his 1993 Upper Deck Rookie card in their collection. Please share your comical caption to this card for your opportunity to score a FREE baseball mail day from Upper Deck!

My glove keeps trying to float away. I wish I had a bunch of World Series rings to way it down.

It is my chance to shine and be mentioned as one of the greatest Yankees of all- time!

Only if there was something I could wear on my head to keep the sun out. Maybe I will just use this glove instead.

Some said I couldn’t reach the top. Now look at me, I’m up in the sky!

Derek Jeter has been playing baseball so long that sunglasses didn’t exist when he was a rookie.

Fun Fact, Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter were on the same 1993 Greensboro Hornets Single A Roster.)

I’d rather be down here on the field than sitting waaaaay up there in the UPPER DECK!

55

What’s that brown thing on my hand? What… what is it?! GET IT… GET IT OFF! GET IT OFF ME!! Boggs! Strawberry! O’Neill! ANYBODY!!

A-Rod is coming back from suspension in 2016? Better make 2015 my last year!

60

This is my glove. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My glove is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My glove, without me, is useless. Without my glove, I am useless.

61

This is the start of something …… Legendary!

62

If I hold my glove like this maybe I can block the sun . Better yet turning it around the sun will turn it GOLD!

63

Sun! Ball! Sun! Ball! Sun! …… Derek?
