Just a reminder, the Jordan Brand x Derek Jeter Footwear Collection auction to benefit the Turn 2 Foundation is set to end at 12pm EST on August 12th, 2011. Take a look below for the full details on this very special collection.
Steiner Sports has joined forces with Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation in celebrating Jeter’s historic achievement of becoming the first New York Yankees player and the 28th player in MLB history to reach 3,000 career hits by hosting a special online auction of a commemorative Jordan Brand Derek Jeter footwear collection.
One hundred percent of the funds raised will support Turn 2 Foundation for its mission to create and support signature programs and activities that motivate young people to turn away from drugs and alcohol and “TURN 2” healthy lifestyles.
The charity auction begins on August 2, 2011 at 12:00 p.m. EDT and ends on August 12, at 12:00 p.m. EDT. Bidders can visit SteinerSports.com to enter a bid.
The special edition Jordan Brand “DJ3K” collection pays tribute to Jeter’s past and present by featuring all ten of his signature shoes with the Jordan Brand. Each shoe is hand-signed by Jeter and dated with the year in which he wore the shoe. The truly unique collectible is encased in a special designed trunk that features Jeter’s Jordan Brand logo. The winning bidder will be part of a special club as there are only two of the “DJ3K” collections in existence, the other of which belongs to “The Captain”.
Since receiving his first signature Jordan Brand shoe in 2002, Jeter has played the game with grit and determination resembling Michael Jordan. Included in the trunk are the following signed signature shoes:
2002: Jumpman Turn 2
2003: Jumpman DJ

2005: Jumpman Jeter Six4Three
2006: Jumpman Jeter Official
