The first and only player to be enshrined in Cooperstown by a unanimous vote, former Bronx Bombers closer Mariano Rivera warranted his “automatic” selection by establishing himself as far and away the greatest closer the game has even seen. This New York Yankees home jersey is autographed by the all-time saves leader. Framed to 34x42”, the size “48” white knit button-down garment is displayed to show the front, where the interlocking “NY” logo is sewn in blue twill to the left breast. Just below, Rivera has signed in black marker (“7” strength) and inscribed “1st save 5-17-96 – 602 saves 9-19-11 – all-time saves leader – enter sandman – 8/50.” On the left sleeve, a patch with a Rivera likeness commemorates his record save total. Accompanying is a cert card/hologram from Steiner Sports.
