Derek Jeter Reportedly Trades Autographed Memorabilia for One-Night Stands
Derek Jeter is a boss. Considering he is a 12-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion, that is something you already knew. We also know he has very little — if any — problems with the ladies. Jeter is still a bachelor at age 37 and seems to be doing just fine. A couple of months ago we told you that his relationship with Minka Kelly may not be completely over, but today we’re inclined to think that it is. According to the NY Post, Jeter is back to playing the field and has been courting a number of beauties in his Trump World Tower bachelor pad. And that’s not even the entertaining part.
A source told the Post that Jeter has become known for having one-night stands with women and then sending them on their way with parting gifts.
“Derek has girls stay with him at his apartment in New York, and then he gets them a car to take them home the next day,” the source revealed. “Waiting in his car is a gift basket containing signed Jeter memorabilia, usually a signed baseball.”
Believe it or not, we still haven’t gotten to the most entertaining part.
“This summer, he ended up hooking up with a girl who he had hooked up with once before, but Jeter seemed to have forgotten about the first time and gave her the same identical parting gift, a gift basket with a signed Derek Jeter baseball,” the source continued. “He basically gave her the same gift twice because he’d forgotten hooking up with her the first time!”
And there you have it. Before people start lambasting Jeter for enjoying the whimsy and wonder of the one-night stand, remember that it takes two to tango. He goes through the effort of giving his acquaintances gifts following the fun, and that’s more than most professional athletes can say I’m sure. So he forgot he met someone. Maybe he was a little tipsy. Who knows? It’s not like he brought a microphone into his room to broadcast the fun.
