Derek Jeter Fashion Show


Dood, Jetah has weahd ahms.

This item broke pre-Thanksgiving, but sports card publication company Beckett Media recently posted some mocked-up images of Derek Jeter in all 30 MLB uniforms. (“Mocked-up” describes the fact better than the effect, but this is a family-friendly blog.) The creator of the images sportingly notes that some of his results were not strictly rigorous proportion-wise.

Actually, the best images are eerily convincing (Red Sox, Athletics) and thrill the viewer with a momentary trip to an alternate universe — for one split-second, some part of your brain actually perceives Derek Jeter as a BoSock or an Athletic. The tastefully decorated upper floors of my intellect were warmed by this.

However, the well-lived-in lower floors of my intellect, which are usually set to smoking by the Jete-dog, were left fully aflame by the less carefully-executed mockups. These caused me to perceive Derek, in turn, as having a VERY large head, using some kind of reverse-Sosa skin-darkening cream, and sitting in a way that Derek Jeter would never, ever, ever sit.

I am not particularly a fan of Derek Jeter. But even I have little stomach to further explore these dark and perverse parallel realities.

Jeters’ head is Polanco-esque in the Phillies pic. Yikes.

As an A’s fan, a split-second is all it takes to loose your appetite.

Jack, I suggest that you chew your food nice and slow, or failing that, a little Pepto-Bismol will work wonders.

The idea of Jeter at 3/45 makes my stomach turn, but part of me, some small, perverse part of me, thrills to the idea of Jeter as a Red Sox.

As far as the big-head versions go, the first thing that popped into my mind was….
