New York's Carnegie Deli unveils massive Derek Jeter sandwich
New York City's famous Carnegie Deli unveiled a new sandwich in honor of Derek Jeter this week, and it looks delicious and enormous in equal measure.
"The Derek Jeter Triple Club Sandwich" was dreamed up by owner Sarri Harper and includes a mountain of turkey and bacon along with American cheese and iceberg lettuce on toasted white bread.
Harper tells the New York Daily News the sandwich's make-up pays tribute to the longtime shortstop in several ways.
"It has five ingredients because he won the World Series five times, and it has two meats because he was number 2."
Harper also pointed out the American cheese was chosen because "nothing is more American than baseball."
The towering sandwich is $28, and may only be available for a limited time.
