One can almost hear the music of "Enter Sandman," Mariano Rivera's theme song, as he trots towards the pitcher's mound at Yankee Stadium in this stunning canvas artistic creation by Dave Hobrecht. Rivera pitched for 19 Major League seasons, all with the Yankees. He holds the Major League record for saves (652) and games finished (952). The 13-time All-Star was on five Yankee World Series winning teams. Known as "Mo" or "Sandman," Rivera was selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2019. Dave Hobrecht, the artist, was a childhood sports enthusiast who was severely injured when hit by an automobile at age 13. He turned interest in sport from playing sports into creating sports art. He is famous for his black and white renderings, using a mixture of charcoal and pastel. He has created unique art for Topps baseball cards, Steiner Sports, Willie Mays, Cal Ripken, Jr., and many, many others. Almost as if the canvas art is a photo or film, Rivera is seen in the foreground, with the background of the Stadium and the fans in soft focus. The effect makes the image of Rivera stand out. The art measures approximately 18.9"x36.75", and it has a thickness of about 0.75". Rivera has signed the creation at the bottom, in large, flowing script, with a black marker. At the bottom lower right, Dave Hobrecht has signed the creation in black marker, and above the artist's signature is the limited-edition numbering "50/100." The art comes with a Certificate of Authenticity by Steiner Sports Memorabilia. The signed art canvas would attract admirable attention in any sports collection.
