Derek Jeter scooped up his first retirement gifts from an opposing team Wednesday night in Houston and, well, the Yankee captain got some good things and some weird things.

Let's start with the weird things.

Check out these pinstripe cowboy boots and this cowboy hat:

I just can't imagine Jeter ever slipping those babies on. Maybe I'm wrong, though. Who knows?

Looks like some new Titleist woods and probably some Titleist irons. Those are some great gifts.

But a lot of people on Twitter were more interested in the boots.
