When you go out West, they say not to miss the Grand Canyon, because its one of the few things in life that doesnt disappoint. For his entire career, Mariano Rivera has been the Grand Canyon of baseball. Look at his movements on the mound; even the smallest motion is unflappable. Notice the way he flexes his body at the hips, then rights it just before going into his windup, like a butterfly knife snapping into place. Marvel as he bewilders professional hitters with but one pitch, his devastating cut fastball, notorious the world over for the broken bats left in its wake and likely never to be seen again. Even if you didnt know he was the career saves leader and the greatest closer of all-time and one of the greatest Yankees of all-time youd know he was special just by watching him. And by the way his peers watch him. Among his career accomplishments, Rivera is 13x All-Star, 5x World Series champion, 1999 World Series and 2003 ALCS MVP, 3x MLB saves leader and the MLB career saves record holder. This Mariano Rivera autograph is guaranteed authentic and includes a Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity and an accompanying tamper-evident Steiner Hologram. The Steiner Seal Means It?s Real. Steiner Sports is the Official Memorabilia Partner of Mariano Rivera and the New York Yankees.
