Bid in Heritage Sports Vintage Sports Photography Catalog Auction Ending August 23, 2019

Bid in the Vintage Sports Photography Catalog Auction Ending August 23, 2019.  The world’s largest collectibles auctioneer has added a new sale to its summer roster, a carefully curated assembly of more than 200 lots featuring elite photographs from 20th century American sports. Now open for bidding, the auction is expected to garner more than $400,000 in sales when the gavel drops Aug. 23 in extended bidding format.

“Vintage photography might be the most dynamic subset of the sports collectibles marketplace right now,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports auctions for Heritage Auctions. “The massive surge in pricing is a relatively recent phenomenon, and plenty of investors believe we’re still quite early in the genre’s growth.”

As is the case in many sports collectibles auctions, Babe Ruth is expected to dominate the top of the results once the final bids are cast, with a rarely-seen 1919 Red Sox card and a glorious 1920 Yankees shot likely to compete for the top lot honors.

Also on tap is the Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Babe Bows Out” photograph from his 1948 Yankee Stadium farewell. Ruth’s legendary sidekick, Lou Gehrig, appears in a highly-desirable “Luckiest Man” photo, while a fantastic rookie image of Mickey Mantle may set a new record for the “Commerce Kid.”

Other highlights include:

Now open for bidding, Heritage Auctions’ Vintage Sports Photography Catalog Auction will end in extended bidding format Aug. 23 on Sports.HA.com/50017. Prior to the sale, Heritage’s Summer Platinum Sports Collectibles Auction is expected to add more than $10 million to its hobby-topping sales when more than 600 elite lots close Aug. 17-18 on HA.com/50016.
