Derek Jeter Gift Meter: St Louis Cardinals

Though Derek Jeter hasn't played many games in Busch Stadium during his career, that didn't stop the St Louis Cardinals from giving him a fond farewell, complete with parting gifts.

1. Cuff links, bearing the likeness of Cardinals icon Stan "the man" Musial.

2. A check for $10,000, payable to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation

Analysis:  Jeter had to share the spotlight with members of the 1964 Cardinals, who beat the Yankees in seven games that year to win the World Series.  That wasn't fair. It was a three game series.  One game to honor them and one game to honor Jeter would have been much better. That being said, the cuff links are very classy.

Rating:  On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being garbage and 10 being perfect-- 8
