Licensees that will participate in making the Rivera items include Nike, New Era, Rawlings, wall-art company Fathead and coin company Highland Mint. Brandon Steiner, CEO of Steiner Sports, said he is also making a Rivera commemorative bat that will have some of the players who never got a hit off the closer etched into it.
Steiner is also selling a host of autographed items, including a 20-inch-by-24-inch signed photo with the inscription “Last To Wear #42″ ($675), a signed final season baseball in a glass case with Rivera’s accomplishments ($450) and a signed and framed “Exit Sandman” subway sign with game-used dirt ($350).
