The farewell tour of Derek Jeter continues as the New York Yankees future Hall of Fame shortstop goes from town to town collecting gifts along the way. With the Bronx Bombers in St. Louis to play the Cardinals, it’s Jeter who will add his name to a very cool piece of baseball memorabilia depicting the signatures of many of the members of the 3,000 hit club.

This ball features autographs from Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, Eddie Collins, Lou Brock, Stan Musial, Pete Rose and Roberto Clemente, among other in what has to be one of the coolest pieces of baseball memorabilia around.

The ball is owned by Rush front man Geddy Lee and has to be worth an inordinate amount of money.

According to Buster Olney and Derrick Goold, Cardinals beat writer for St. Louis Post-Dispatch, they could make out every signature from the 3,000 club except for Cap Anson who was the first member of the club in 1897 and Honus Wagner who was the second member when he joined the club in 1914 and is one spot ahead of Jeter on the all-time hits list with 3,415.

Jeter currently ranks eighth all-time with 3,362 career hits and entered the 3,000 hit club with a home run off David Price in a game against the Tampa Bay Rays on July 9, 2011.

I’m not Darren Rovell but I’d have to imagine this ball would fetch more than a million dollars on the open market, right?
