    2013 Mariano Rivera Game Worn & Signed New York Yankees Jersey. It's rare to find complete consensus in any discussion of all-time sports supremacy. Was Ted Williams the greatest hitter of all time, or was it Babe Ruth? Was Joe DiMaggio or Willie Mays the superior center fielder? But when it comes to rankings of the game's greatest closer, there is one name that tops all ballots.

    This may be your last chance to purchase a Mariano Rivera gamer before the gates of Cooperstown swing open for him, so those collectors with an eye toward investing will surely be paying close attention. Though the Yankees led by four when Rivera took the mound to the strains of Metallica on June 13, 2013 in the bottom of the ninth against the Tampa Bay Rays--thus a non-save appearance--the result was classic Mariano: three up, three down.

    Provenance is as ironclad as the hobby provides, with holographic stickers from both Major League Baseball and Steiner Sports attesting to the event, and Rivera himself providing his own assurance in the form of a bold blue sharpie inscription that reads, "Mariano Rivera, 2013 Game Used, 6/21/13, Final Season."

    The classic design features blue tackle twill on pinstripes, with the "NY" logo on the chest and one of the last appearances of number "42" on verso. Lower left front tail holds "Majestic Athletic Authentic Collection" label with "2013" and size "46" flap tags. Here we find holographic authentication stickers from MLB and Steiner Sports, and a Yankees barcode sticker below. Wear is appropriate for a short, perfect outing. MLB EK641685. Steiner 204083. COA from Steiner (autograph). LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
