While championship rings, sports cards and game-worn jerseys have dominated the hobby for the past decade, it is without question that original photography has now emerged as one of the new top dogs among advanced collectors. Whether it is Jordan, Ruth, Cobb, Gehrig, or any other legend of the game, original images of these sports greats mean big bucks in the collecting world. And due to that popular demand, Heritage Auctions will hold its Summer Photography Auction on August 23. Set to launch in a few weeks, at the same time as our Summer Platinum Night Auction, the photography auction is filling up nicely. That said, there is still time to send in your magnificent photos, for what promises to be a truly special auction.
With the photography consignment deadline set for June 26, collectors should contact a Heritage representative today to take part in this masterful event.
