Derek Jeter is teaming up with Christie’s Auctions to sell a lunch-and-a-game experience that benefits his Turn 2 Foundation.

What to get the Yankee fan who has everything?

How about lunch with Derek Jeter — at the lowball starting price of $ 90,000.

The beloved Yankee shortstop is giving the gift of himself this holiday season to raise money for his Turn 2 Foundation, which promotes leadership and healthy lifestyles for kids.

Christie’s is running an online auction through Dec. 17 that includes lunch for four with Jeter and then a ride with him to Yankee Stadium.

And that’s just the game-opener. The highest bidder also gets a VIP tour of the Bronx Bombers’ ballpark and on-field batting practice with the Yankees captain.

At game time, Jeter will suit up while his guests suite up — in his personal luxury box.

At the end of nine innings, the auction-winner will walk away with an autographed, game-used Jeter glove, a signed printer’s proof of his 3,000th hit lithograph and three personalized, game-used Yankee Stadium bases from that day.

The only thing Jeter can’t guarantee is that he’ll run the bases himself. The 39-year-old — currently dating swimsuit model Hannah Davis, 23 — is rehabbing a fractured ankle and other ailments that limited him to just 17 games in 2013.

Billed as “The Ultimate, Unprecedented Fan Experience: Spend Game Day with Derek Jeter,” it has fans drooling.

“It’s the best Christmas gift I’ll never get,” said Lauren Carroll, a public school teacher and die-hard Yankees fan who grew up in upstate Poughkeepsie.
