Derek Jeter's New York Yankees jersey from the legendary shortstop's FIRST Major League Baseball game just sold for $369,000 ... a record-setting sale price!!
21-year-old Jeter made his debut for the Yankees on May 29, 1995 ... when the Bronx Bombers took on the Mariners at the Kingdome in Seattle.
DJ batted 9th in the order ... and went 0-for-5 with a strikeout. The Yankees lost the game 8-7.
The NYY grey road uniform that DJ wore was recently put on the auction block at Goldin Auctions ... where a (very rich) fan paid $369k.
The uni is signed by Jeter ... and is also inscribed with "Game Used, 5-29-95 MLB Debut".
Jeter only played 14 more games in the '95 season ... and didn't have much success. He hit .250 with no home runs and 11 strikeouts.
But, EVERYTHING changed the next year -- Jeter became a superstar in 1996 ... hitting .314, batting in 78 runs and winning the A.L. Rookie of the Year.
Jeets also helped lead the Yankees to their 1st title in almost 20 years ... his 1st of 5 titles.
Derek ended up playing in over 2,700 games in his legendary career -- and was recently voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
