The bulk of his net worth comes from playing baseball and football; Sanders is one of the most versatile athletes in history. He is the only person to win both a World Series title and a Super Bowl championship. And he is the only person to score a touchdown and hit a home run in the same week. He played professional baseball for nine seasons and professional football for fourteen.

In football, he played with the San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, and Atlanta Falcons, and Washington Redskins. While Sanders mainly played cornerback, he would return both punts and kickoffs, as well as line up at wide receiver. He is considered a “shut down corner”, which means he guards the best receiver a team has, and does not allow them to have a good game. As a football player, he made a total of $47.45 million from salary.

He was elected to eight Pro Bowls, eight time All-Pro, he led the league in kick return yards in 1992, and was given the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1994. He scored 22 touchdowns, intercepted 53 passes, and forced ten fumbles. In his lone season with the 49ers, he returned his six interceptions for an NFL record 303 yards, scoring three touchdowns; two returns of at least ninety yards. It was with these 49ers that he would win his first ring. He would win his second with the Dallas Cowboys, the very next season.

In baseball, he played part time with the San Francisco Giants, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds, and the New York Yankees. He played the outfield (left field and center field) for these teams. He hit 39 home runs, stole 186 bases, and was the NL Triples Champion in 1992. Sanders appeared in many ads when he was in sports for brands like Pizza Hut, Pepsi, Nike, Burger King, and American Express. He was Sega’s spokesman on their line of sports games. This too, accounts for some of his net worth.

Before signing with the NFL Network, he worked for CBS Sports where he worked for three years, making over a million a year. He was also on “Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love” that aired eight episodes in 2008, lasting only a season. The number 2 that Sanders wore while he played with the Florida State Seminoles has been retired, and is in the Atlanta Falcons’s Ring of Honor. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. In 1988, he won the Jim Thorpe Award.
