Jerseys from Mantle and Mays, Rookie Cards From Ruth and Alcindor May Rewrite Record Books in Heritage Auctions’ November Sports Sale

Heritage Sports Makes Its Way Out East In OctoberHeritage Auctions expects to continue to continue its lengthy streak of eight-figure quarterly auctions in mid-November, as nearly 4,000 lots are placed upon the auction block for the hobby’s largest global bidding audience Nov. 16-18. As is traditional for Heritage’s spring and fall events, the offerings span a vast range of sports, formats and values, ensuring that there will be targets for collectors of all disciplines and collecting budgets.

heritage11-1-17“We feel that these are the auctions that really help to bring ‘new blood’ into the hobby,” said Chris Ivy, director of Sports Collectibles at Heritage. “Every one of these auctions tends to add a several hundred new bidders to our ranks, and this kind of growth is essential to maintaining the bull market in sports collectibles that has endured for more than a decade now, and to keep Heritage in command of the pricing record books.”

The more gaudy offerings in this otherwise quite democratic event include six-figure game worn jerseys from Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra and others by Willie MaysTed WilliamsRoberto Clemente and Hank Aaron. Elite trading cards include Babe RuthMickey Mantle and Sandy Koufax rookies to stunning Mint 9 examples of the rare and coveted 1933 Goudey Nap Lajoie (est. $200,000) and the 1952 Jackie Robinson(est. $80,000).

Heritage will sell the only known 1947 Jackie Robinson rookie jersey (est. $3 million) in its November 19th “Heroes of Sport” special auction, but this standard three-day event will feature the closing bookend of that essential baseball career, the 1962 Hall of Fame plaque presented to the brave racial pioneer upon his Cooperstown induction (est. $100,000).

Other key offerings within this sale include a trio of original oil paintings from famed American sports artist LeRoy Neiman, featuring the subjects Bjorn BorgTom Seaver and Greg Lemond.

Other highlights include:

This auction is now open for bidding and will close in Extended Bidding format in three separate sessions on November 16-18 at 10 p.m. Central time.
