Heritage Sports Auctions February 23-24, 2019 Platinum Sports Auction – In Progress

Heritage Sports Auctions February 23-24, 2019 Platinum Sports Auction is in progress with over 800+ lots of amazing memorabilia, autographs, game used items, un-opened wax, vintage sports cards and so much more! Bid, view and register for the auction at sports.ha.com.

 

 Heritage Auctions’ Platinum Night sales have a long history as the most dangerous threat to standing world record prices, and experts expect more to fall: No fewer than 17 lots are expected to record prices of six or seven figures. Bidding is now open for the sale will close in Extended Bidding format, Feb. 23-24, 2019 on HA.com/50011.

“In both value and lot total, this is our largest Platinum Night event to date,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports auctions for Heritage. “Every consignor in the hobby knows that this is the auction no serious collector can miss.”

The Lou Gehrig Collection will provide a thrilling assortment of the Hall of Fame first baseman’s personal treasure trove of memorabilia, including a game worn cap (est. $200,000-up), multiple signed documents, and the earliest known photograph of the “Iron Horse” as a child (est. $10,000-up). The collection comes with rock-solid provenance, consigned by the family, which received a portion of the Gehrig family estate after the death of Lou’s mother, Christina,

Historic game-used bats are likely to rank among the sale’s top results, with Babe Ruth’s first home run bat of the 1924 season (est. $2 million-up), one of the most extensively documented Ruth gamers in the hobby. This bat, like the one with which Ruth hit his first home run the season before, was presented as an award to a top Los Angeles-area high school baseball player. Perhaps even more historic is the bat with which Pete Rose surpassed Ty Cobb for sole ownership of the career hits record, number 4,192 (est. $600,000-up).

The greatest of the diamond makes room for the “greatest of the squared circle” with a pair of robes worn by Muhammad Ali in his most historic bouts: his controversial “Phantom Punch” knockout of Sonny Liston (est. $150,000-up) in the 1965 rematch, and his first meeting with Joe Frazier (est. $1 million-up), the celebrated, “Fight of the Century.”

The most impressive and extensive supply of Platinum Night trading cards includes a near-set of autographed 1933 Goudeys, a 1910 Old Mill Joe Jackson (est. $300,000-up), multiple examples of the 1952 Topps Mantle (est. $400,000 to $60,000, based on grade) and a vast expanse of unopened wax and cello (est. $80,000-up).
