This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This is striking, shadow box arrangement that showcases a Limited-Edition Mariano Rivera autographed pitching rubber with multiple inscriptions. The rubber boasts an enormous Rivera black Sharpie autograph of nearly 9 inches, atop inscriptions of "1st Save - 5-13-96, 602 Saves 9-19-11, All Time Saves Leader, Enter Sandman." A Yankees "NY" logo adorns the left side directly above the edition size, in this instance the highly coveted No. 1/50, making the piece all the more extraordinary. The rubber is affixed at the lower end of an attractive 30-by-19-inch Rivera photo/illustration, which in turn is encased in a shadow box arrangement with plexiglass cover and elegant 2 1/2-inch wood frame to overall dimensions of a whopping 33-by-22 inches. All elements appear to be in essentially pristine, as-issued and problem-free condition. Comes with a Steiner COA.
