Mystique and Aura take the field at Yankee Stadium as Derek Jeter's #2 is retired, likely last time Jeter, Bernie, Mariano, Posada and Pettitte are on the field together

"Mystique and Aura" fan sign from World Series game 5 at Yankee Stadium, Nov. 1, 2001, Yankees won 3-2 in 12 innings.

11/2/2001, "Mystique, Aura, and Timely Hits," Tim Sullivan


"During the 2001 World Series, then Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher, Curt Schilling was asked if the Diamondbacks would have any trouble handling the Yankee “mystique.” Schilling responded saying Mystique and Aura sound like dancers at a night club.

The next night, Fox cameras spotted the greatest fan sign ever that read "Mystique and Aura Appearing Nightly.""...

5/14/17, "Derek Jeter’s No. 2 officially retired by Yankees," Newsday, Laura Albanese

""Looking back, it was a special time, a special period in Yankee history.” 

And one that very officially came to a close Sunday. The current Yankees have plenty of promise, but there’s no denying this could have been the last time Jeter and Williams and Rivera and Posada and Martinez and Pettitte and Torre are on the field together.

(continuing): "“It’s the end of an era,” Posada said. “He’s it. He’s the last one.”"
