Heritage Auction Galleries Starts Collectibles Blog

Collectors, consignors and the curious alike can now get the inside scoop on hot lots coming down the pipe at Heritage Auction Galleries, along with insight, interviews and commentary from Heritage Auction Galleries staff at the company’s recently launched blog at www.HeritageAuctions.Blogspot.com. Posts are added each weekday.

With three full months under its belt, the blog has already proven a hotspot for a wide cross-sampling of the Heritage audience. Principal writing duties for the blog are held down by staff writer Noah Fleisher, who joined the company in September of 2008.
 
Noah made a name for himself in the antiques and collectibles market as a writer and an editor for a variety of publications, including Antique Trader, New England Antiques Journal and Northeast Journal of Antiques and Art. He has written several articles for digital publication Style Century Magazine, and also penned the Style Century blog, StyleWire, from May 2008 to January 2009. Noah is also the author of the forthcoming Warman’s Antiques and Collectibles Price Guide to Mid-Century Modern Furniture, due out this summer.
 
“Heritage is an amazing place to work, with so much great stuff coming in and out on a regular basis that no one could possibly take in the total history and value that the company represents,” he said. “With my past as a writer and an editor I can’t help but want to explore the things going on here. In my work as the staff copywriter I also have access to all 26 departments in the company, the people who work in them and the singular items that routinely come up for auction. It’s a natural fit.”
 
The blog also features regular Coin Monday posts from numismatic cataloger John Dale Beety, a young numismatist of note with a flair for making the often mystifying world of coin collecting accessible and interesting to any collector. Other Heritage employees have been enlisted and will be contributing from time to time as the rare and valuable collectibles that cross their desks call for.
 
“The response has been great,” said Fleisher. “Heritage has insisted that the voice of the blog be independent, which is a great thing to hear as a writer. That lets us choose our subjects and write about them freely. At heart we’re just collectors talking about things that we’d love to have.”
 
The blog is updated daily. Recent postings have covered the sale of an exceedingly rare 1932 Freaks movie poster, the consignment of the Charles Martignette Estate – the finest collection of illustration art to ever reach the market, a trove of rare sporting memorabilia related to legend/pariah “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, a mid-nineteenth century gold ingot coming up for auction in April, a copy of a very rare  Showcase #4 comic, the book that started comics’ Silver Age, and much more.
