The New Yorker magazine is honoring soon to be retired Derek Jeter on the cover of its latest issue.

The artist is no fan of the Bronx Bombers.

The cover depicts the Yankees captain from behind, tipping his cap as the Stadium's famous frieze wraps around him.

It was painted by artist Mark Ulriksen, a Red Sox fan who says he loathes the Yankees, but appreciates and respects Jeter.

Ulriksen goes on to say Jeter is, "a classic—humble, consistently spectacular, both at bat and in the field. Commemorating his career with a farewell cover is something that I’m sure even the Red Sox Nation can forgive me for.”
