ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Former New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is widely regarded as one of the most...if not THE most...dominant relievers in baseball history. And he is also one of the most popular Yankees of all-time...no easy task on a franchise loaded with historical baseball icons. Born in Panama, Mariano played 19 seasons in the MLB, all with the Yankees. Nicknamed "Mo" and "Sandman", Rivera spent most of his career as a relief pitcher, and served as the Yankees' closer for 17 seasons. A 13x All-Star and 5x(!) World Series champion, he is MLB's career leader in saves (652) and games finished (952) and won five AL Rolaids Relief Man Awards, finishing in the top three in voting for the AL Cy Young Award four times. Yeah he was pretty good. So good that he was the last man to wear the #42, Jackie Robinson's number that has been retired by the MLB. There will not be another player with that number. Available with both 16x20 and 11x14 photographs, our unsigned SGA Signature Series is a Sports Gallery Exclusive display that includes an inset plate with facsimile laser-engraved signature. This display features a classic 1998 World Series Celebration shot of Mariano. Also included on the plate is Mariano's remarkable save record, five World Championships and distinction as being the last player to wear #42. Just a great piece of Sports Art commemorating an all-time Yankee Great!.
