Derek Jeter Gets Carnegie Deli Sandwich

The Carnegie Deli in Manhattan has introduced a sandwich to honor Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter. It is called the “Derek Jeter Triple Club Sandwich,” and it is priced at $27.99.

The towering sandwich contains a heap of turkey, American cheese, tomato, lettuce and bacon – making it certifiably not kosher.

Sarri Harper, daughter of the deli’s owner Marian Levine, told the New York Daily News that the sandwich has two meats because Jeter’s number was 2. The sandwich has five ingredients because Jeter won five World Series championships.

Harper also said that the Jeter sandwich will likely be offered only for a limited time, unless it sells well. Its main competition is the best-selling Woody Allen sandwich, which consists of corned beef and pastrami.

Jeter, who played his last game Monday night at Fenway Park in Boston, is considered a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame.
