Rivera has all-time best NYY postseason resume. Gehrig's OPS would be even higher had he not had an off Series in 1938, when he may've been in early stages of ALS.

As to other sports, it's pretty damned hard to compare T. Brady's postseason record (or that of a QB we had at ND in my day) to Rivera's. IIRC, MJ was NBA Finals MVP in all 6 of Bulls' title seasons, and he carried da Bulls to 2 conference finals against the Bad Boys before the title run.

Rivera had an awe-inspiring postseason record. How it compares to others' records involves considerable subjectivity.
