Not sure what to get that extra special stalker in your life? Well, fear no more.
Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation is auctioning off a lunch for four with the Yankee shortstop including a ride (presumably a Ford Edge because Jeter, well he’s got an edge) to the stadium with the Captain, private batting practice, and the opportunity to watch the game from his personal suite, which is usually reserved for his parents or a gaggle of buxom beauties.
Just in case you were wondering, that’s how teams are phasing real fans out. Active players have their own suites. Unreal. But, I digress.
At the end of the game, the lucky winning bidder will receive an autographed, game-used Jeter glove, a signed lithograph of his 3,000th hit and three personalized, game-used Yankee Stadium bases from that magical July 9, 2012 day. A literal gift basket that many of those aforementioned buxom babes have received.
The opening bid starts at $90,000 for “The Ultimate, Unprecedented Fan Experience: Spend Game Day with Derek Jeter” package, so it’s not affordable to the “common man”.
The proceeds go to leadership and healthy lifestyles for kids aka Jeter’s tax write-off. Because of the price, the gift will probably go to some rich kid who doesn’t even like baseball, which once again reinforce that life isn’t fair.
Or perhaps some young, lonely socialites can pool their money together and get to see some of the legendary “Yeah Jeets!” treatment.
