Derek Jeter Gift Meter: Oakland Athletics

The Napa Valley was the theme Sunday when the Oakland Athletics paid tribute to Derek Jeter.

1.  A customized 3-liter bottle of Abreu Madrona Ranch Cabernet--2009.

2. A private tour with the winemaker.

3. A stay at the Meadowood Resort in Napa Valley.

4. A check for $10,002 to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation.

Analysis:  This presentation has originality written all over it.  Also, the classiness of the wine angle fits perfectly with the classiness of Jeter.  As for the check, I'm a little confused as to why they added the extra two dollars.  If they wanted to include the "2," why not put it next to the dollar sign?

Rating: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being garbage and 10 being perfect-- 9

Twins and Indians up next!

A side note:  I'm sure everyone has heard about Jeter's new fundraising drive, Spend Game Day With Derek Jeter.  If not, the Captain is giving you a chance to do just that.  Click here for all the details.
