What does Derek Jeter have in common with Dr. Mark Green?

Blue Jays at YankeesLast Thursday marked a day in history as Derek Jeter played his final game as shortstop for the Major League Baseball team, the New York Yankees. Jeter has had an amazing career with the Yankees; even receiving a standing ovation right here is Kansas City when they came to play the Royals. Now, the Yankee Organization has up for sale his game-worn socks! Yup, you read that correctly: they are selling Derek Jeter’s socks! The knee-high black sock comes post-wash removing the Jeter game day sweat. For $409.99 you can receive 1 sock worn by Derek Jeter.

Not to be outdone… Kansas City Foot and Ankle is auctioning off Dr. Mark Green’s used socks! Starting today, you will be able to silently bid on a sock worn by Dr. Green. Bids are tax deductible and can be submitted via email to: kristyn@kansascityfootandankle.com or at the office in person.
