When it comes to card collecting I think there are certain players/cards that we all think are must haves. For me one of them was a Jose Canseco 86 Donruss RC. Recently I also came to the conclusion that a Derek Jeter RC should be part of that mix. He is undoubtedly a future hall of famer, and one of the most collectible players in any card release, so adding a RC of his to my collection just seems right. Maybe it's a personal preference, but when I want a RC I like to actually obtain the card from a wax pack. So for an easy and affordable way to get a Jeter rookie I purchased a 1993 Bowman hobby box. Opening the packs I found the cards were rather stuck together, but about 5 packs in, there it was a Jeter rookie, and in pretty much perfect condition. Of course the box doesn't have many other cards of value other than a Pettitte RC (which I also got), but for the money (about $30), this is certainly one of the best ways to get a Jeter RC.
