It's more than most girls get after a one-night stand, but a signed baseball from Derek Jeter? How much more egotistical can a man get? According to a friend of the baseball player, he mistakenly did the same thing to one of his flings twice (apparently he has a difficult time remembering who he has slept with). The source reported to the New York Post that "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. Waiting in his car is a gift basket containing signed Jeter memorabilia, usually a signed baseball." Sounds like a business deal, and the perfect definition of "wham, bam, thank you ma'am."
After Derek Jeter split up with his longtime girlfriend this past summer, actress Minka Kelly, it would appear that the Yankees player has kept himself rather busy--so busy that he can't even remember who he has hooked up with and given his oh-so-thoughtful gifts to! The friend reported that Jeter is in fact a very shy guy, preferring to stay out of the limelight and keeping his love life as private as possible. Oh, so that would explain why he treats the girls like prostitutes, bringing them to his house and having "private cocktail parties," and having the girls in through the back door so they can avoid the paparazzi. You've got to give the man one thing: he certainly is efficient.
Giving a girl a signed baseball like a souvenir is not a testament to how highly Derek Jeter thinks of the lady, but how highly he thinks of himself. Girls, if this happens to you, do what any self-respecting girl should do in the situation: sell that swag on eBay.
