Derek Jeter's farewell tour continued on Thursday when the New York Yankees' shortstop received a parting gift from the New York Mets before the conclusion of the 2014 Subway Series.

The Mets, much like every other team Jeter has faced this season, honored The Captain with some tile art of his famous No. 2, a cake commemorating his time in Major League Baseball and a donation to Jeter's charity in a proper numerical format.

It's another classy move by a MLB organization. Even the Mets are properly honoring Jeter despite the fact that the Mets and Yanks have an in-town rivalry that is heated between fans of both teams.

Granted, it wasn't exactly the best gift Jeter has received thus far in 2014, but it is still deserved recognition nonetheless of one of the great shortstops in the history of the game.
