This game used last out ball from Mariano Rivera's 2001 ALDS Game 3 Save (the Derek Jeter Flip Play Game) vs the Oakland Athletics was given to Brandon Steiner by Mariano Rivera after the 2001 season. Derek Jeter autographed the sweet spot and inscribed "Flip Play October 13, 2001". Rivera autographed the ball as well and inscribed "Game 3 save last out ball vs Oakland 2001". Rivera used this ball to retire Athletics DH Jeremy Giambi (groundout to 2nd) to win Game 3 of the American League Division Series, earning him another postseason save. This was the first of three consecutive New York Yankees victories after facing elimination down 2-0 in the series. Game 3 will forever be remembered because of Derek Jeter's iconic "Flip Play" which preserved the Yankees lead and catapulted them to three consecutive wins to advance to the ALCS. This baseball comes with a signed Mariano Rivera letter of authenticity. This game used baseball is one of a kind and you will not find it anywhere else. Possibly the finest Derek Jeter game used baseball in existence!
Comes with full letter JSA COA and an MLB Authenticated hologram for the Derek Jeter signature.
