Steiner Sports Bidding a Fond Farewell Celebration for Mariano Rivera

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).

    I have been a baseball collectible enthusiast for more than 25 years with over 2,000 autograph cards and 125 baseballs. I too, would like to get a piece of memorabilia of the greatest closer in baseball history. However, thanks to the prices of promoters such as Tri Star, JP Sports, Dick Gordon Sports, and of course Mr. Steiner, the prices have gotten out of hand.

    In your October 4, 2013 issue, Dick Gordon is promoting a ” rare public signing” with Carl Yastrzemski with
    cards at 60.00, flats and baseball 135.00; JP Sports has Randy Johnson on Saturday, October 5, 2013, flat and baseball 169.00. This is just for the ticket to meet the player!!! Does not include admission, item to be signed, etc. Now, we have this fleecing with Steiner representing Mariano Rivera.

    The players are just as guilty as the promoters. I remember paying 40.00 for Koufax. 55.00 for Mickey Mantle,
    and 180.00 for 2 flats/ and a ball for Joe DiMaggio. All these graphs included the baseball and pictures, and the
    shows were promoted by the National Pasttime in NY. I also fondly remember going to the New York Yankee
    fanfests in NYC where for $35.00 admission you could get past and current Yankee players, coaches, managers,
    and HOFers.

    In closing I have stopped collecting autograph baseballs for the last 10 years as I will not pay these outrageous prices, and have only collected autograph cards through the mail.

    Thank you SCD for letting me post this message.
