OAKLAND -- Derek Jeter's season-long Christmas party continued today at O.co, where he was given a commemorative bottle of Napa Valley wine, and a check for $10,002 -- see what they did there? -- made out to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation.

The presentation was made at home plate before today's Yankees-Athletics game by A's manager Bob Melvin and former Athletic Chili Davis, a teammate of Jeter's on the 1998 and 1999 Yankees. Davis also sent over a personal gift, three bottles of an expensive ($125 a bottle) Cabernet in impressive wooden boxes that were delivered to Jeter's locker before the game.
