Even better than the auction are the question and answers at the bottom of the auction page:
Q: I'm very interested in this auction. Does Rivera come with a COA? How do I know he's real?
A: MARIANO'S DOES NOT COME WITH A COA, BUT HIS SOCIAL SECURITY CARD, DRIVER'S LICENSE, AND PASSPORT ARE ALL VALID FORMS OF AUTHENTICITY. THANKS
Q: How is the odor? Is the stink of Yankee failure ever going to come off?
A: THERE IS NO SUCH ODOR. YANKEE AND FAILURE HAVE NEVER BEEN FOUND TOGETHER...THEY'VE LOST SOME GAMES BUT THEY HAVE NEVER FAILED. GEORGE MIGHT THINK SO BUT I DON'T.26 WORLD SERIES NOT TOO SHABBY
Q: Are you a Yankees fan?
A: YES I AM, AND I LOVE MO. THIS IS JUST ALL ABOUT FUN AND MAKING LIGHT OF A TOUGH COUPLE OF OUTINGS THAT MO HAS EXPERIENCED.
Q: I love your idea, very funny, hope it doesn't work. I love the Sox like you love the yanks. You have a great manager all class, but honestly your owner george is a disgrace to baseball and the human race. he is everything about people that is bad, selfish, insecure, arrogant, a monster to his own employees and the most entitled sob I think I have ever seen. Think maybe I will put Wells up for sale, him I want to get rid of!!!!
A: GIVE WELLS A CHANCE...HE ONLY HAS ONE LOSS AGAINST THE 2005 WS CHAMPS. THANKS FOR LOOKING
Q: Does Mo come with the Mango Tree that is waiting for him down in the Dominican Republic?
A: THIS AUCTION IS FOR A MANGO-FREE MO...SORRY
