Mid-Summer Classic Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This is an imposing three-piece tribute to the eventual Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera, starting with Rivera-signed 8-by-10 photos (two identical) commemorating the final pitch at the old Yankee Stadium in 2008. Rivera signed his elegant script on each, adding his "Enter Sandman" inscription and additional notations of "Final Pitch" and the date, 9-21-08. The photos have been neatly matted in blue and white and carefully framed to overall dimensions of 16-by-13 inches. A much large companion piece displays four full-color 5-by-7-inch photos of Rivera in action, with the images intricately matted in blue and white felt in a striking display with five pristine full World Series tickets similarly showcased. A nameplate atop the piece notes "Mariano River, 5-Time World Champion." It is nicely framed to overall dimensions of 23-by-27 inches. All three pieces appear to be in essentially pristine, as-issued and problem-free condition. Comes with a Steiner COA.
