- Mariano Rivera is, by acclamation, the greatest relief pitcher in baseball history. A first-ballot Hall of Famer, Rivera is only the second pitcher ever to break the 500 save mark, has led the majors in saves three times, and has recorded at least 30 saves in every season since 1997. Additionally,Mo is a five-time World Series Champion, and earned the 1999 World Series MVP and the 2003 ALCS MVP. Remarkably, in an era of loudmouths and flashy showmen, Rivera's done it all with a quiet, understated
- grace that harks back to the Eisenhower era. And he's done it but with one pitch his devastating cutter. Quite simply, Rivera is a once-in-a-lifetime, if not once-in-a-sport, athlete. This signed photo captures Rivera during his signature moment when he enters a game in the late innings, to effectively shut it down. He has further inscribed "Enter Sandman" on the photo, a reference to the foreboding Metallica tune that accompanies his entrance to home games. Comes with a Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity.
