Derek Jeter Talks Arena Club at the National with Just Collect

Leighton Sheldon Joins The Yankees Captain to Talk Cards
  • July 28, 2023

Derek Jeter surprised everyone today at the National here in Chicago, making an appearance to kick off Day 2 of the convention. Our owner, Leighton Sheldon, joined Derek to talk about the Yankee Legend's new card and grading company, Arena Club.

A first-ballot Hall of Famer, Derek Jeter, knows a thing or two about baseball. Since retiring from the Yankees, The Captain joined the hobby you and us here at Just Collect love! Jeter launched his own card and grading company, Arena Club.

Derek invited our owner, Leighton Sheldon, to talk about the site, how easy it is to grade your cards, the ability to showcase, trade, or sell your cards, and Derek has a little fun with Leighton's 1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig baseball card from the Arizona Goudey find:


Not even Derek Jeter can slip one by Leighton! Watch that video again and see where Derek jokingly slipped the Lou Gehrig card into his shirt pocket 😂

Let us know if you're using and enjoying the Arena Club site! We're always down for a fun trade on our account; reach out any time!

If you're at the National this week and are interesting in selling your collection, or perhaps looking to purchase a vintage card to take home, we'd love to see you come visit us in booth 2102!

You never know who will stop by the booth; here is a former NBA star, Jalen Rose, and Fanatics Owner, Michael Rubin, having a look at our vintage cards:
