This Sunday, Sept. 22, will be another milestone day for the greatest closer of all-time when Yankees Steiner Collectibles presents “Mariano Rivera Thank You Fans Photo Day,” as the Bombers face the World Champion San Francisco Giants in a matinee affair at 1:05 p.m.
All fans in attendance will receive a limited-edition photograph from Rivera, who is pictured tipping his cap to the stadium crowd. The photo is inscribed “Thank You Fans Mariano Rivera.”
In addition, full-color posters of the “Exit Sandman” painting by famed sports artist Stephen Holland will be on sale for $20 each on Sunday at the Steiner Store at Yankee Stadium. Holland will be on hand to sign 1,000 posters.
In celebration of Rivera’s farewell season, Yankees Steiner Collectibles has a bevy of Rivera memorabilia and artifacts available to his legion of fans in every price category, with more than 200 pieces available. Steiner has more than 25 MLB-licensed Rivera products, and sales are “through the roof, as people across the country are showing their love for Mariano,” says Steiner.
Mariano Rivera will be the last to wear No. 42 (accentuated again last week when the Red Sox gave him the ’42’ scoreboard panel from Fenway Park). Yankees fans can commemorate the permanent retiring of the number with Steiner Sports special sale of items, from a signed 20-by-24-inch photo with “Last to wear #42″ ($674.99); signed final season baseball in glass case with inscription highlighting Rivera’s accomplishments ($450); framed No. 42 jersey with photo, signature and World Series patch collage ($1,400); Stadium seatback with photo of Rivera leaving the bullpen ($500); framed “Exit Sandman” Subway Sign with game-used dirt, Rivera’s highlights ($350 signed, $120 unsigned); and autographed framed “top view” 12-by-48-inch photo ($800).
