The first item in this lot is a Mariano Rivera signature on a color reproduction of the New York Daily News front page from October 27, 2000. Rivera has signed his name in blue marker over his figure, which is captured as he “jumps for joy after retiring the Mets in the 9th to win 4-2 in Game 5 of the Subway Series.” The 12 x 18-inch display is mounted on a board and has the headline “Yanks Rule!” and the sub-head “Beat Mets to 3-peat as World Champs”. The second item in this lot is a Phil Rizzuto signature and inscription on an 11 x 14-inch black and white posed action photo of the Hall of Famer in his Yankees uniform. Rizzuto has inscribed “Holy Cow” above his signature in blue marker, and inscribed “HOF 94” below his signature in the center of the photo. The third item in this lot is a Phil Rizzuto signature in blue marker on a 12 x 18-inch color poster from “Phil Rizzuto Hall of Fame Day August 13, 1994 Yankees Stadium.” The poster features a reproduction of a 1994 Leroy Neiman painting of the famed Yankee shortstop laying down a bunt in a home game at Yankee Stadium.

The sixth item in this lot is a Don Mattingly signature on an 8 x 10-inch color action photo of the former Yankees first baseman. The seventh item in this lot is a Don Larsen signature in blue marker on a reproduction 8 x 10-inch black an white action photo of the former Yankees pitcher on the mound in the top of the ninth, with two outs, one ball and two strikes on the batter en route to his perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1956 World Series. The reproduction also has the box score superimposed to the right of Larsen’s figure.

The eighth item in this lot is a Don Zimmer signature in blue marker in the upper right corner of a 10½ x 13½-inch color cartoon image of the former Yankees coach and Brooklyn Dodgers infielder celebrating his birthday on January 17, 1989.
