When Derek Jeter walked into the dugout of Target Field during last week’s MLB All-Star game, the New York Yankees shortstop received a rousing standing ovation that lasted for several minutes, and deservingly so.

After all, the crowd in Minnesota was always inclined to recognize a true great of the sport, during his 14th and final appearance as an All-Star.

But for however many accolades Jeter has racked up on the field, there have been just as many off of it. Simply put, the New York Yankees’ captain has lived a life of luxury and fame that has matched his enduring prowess on the baseball diamond for all these years.

And few things tell the story of those years like these figures. Here is the fabulous life of Derek Jeter, as told by numbers:
