Now Open: Heritage Platinum Night Sports Auction February 24-25

Heritage Sports Makes Its Way Out East In October

Sports collectors’ most anticipated auction event of the season will offer an elite lineup of game-used lumber, including important bats from Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Josh Gibson, Mel Ott and Joe DiMaggio, in Heritage Auctions’ Feb. 24-25 Platinum Night Auction now open for bidding and closing in Extended Bidding format.

 “This is really the best of the best,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions at Heritage. “We have the only documented Josh Gibson bat in existence and a 1941 DiMaggio gamer that is attributed with a high degree of probability to his celebrated 56-game hitting streak.”

The greatest slugging triumvirate of the pre-war game also supplies Hillerich & Bradsbys to the event, with a Ruth bat from his earliest Yankees years (est. $600,000+), a late-career gamer from Gehrig (est. $300,000+) and a splendid Jimmie Foxx representation sourced directly from his family (est. $50,000+). Also on offer is the earliest known Major League bat from Mickey Mantle (est. $200,000+) and another important rookie model from fellow 500 Home Run Club member Mel Ott (est. $200,000+).

“There are dozens of significant lots making their hobby debut in the event,” Ivy adds. Highlights include a Rookie Era Bobby Hull Jersey (est. $80,000+), a Johnny Unitas jersey that is photo-matched to the 1959 NFL Championship Game (est. $80,000+), the finest condition known 1903 World Series program (est. $150,000+), and a fresh Babe Ruth Uniform worn as a coach for the 1945 Esquire Baseball Game (est. $200,000+).

Trading card collectors will discover a PSA NM-MT 8 example of the essential 1952 Topps Mantle (est. $400,000+), and Mint 9 rookies from Stan Musial (est. $250,000+), Hank Aaron (est. $200,000+) and Joe Namath (est. $200,000+). The tobacco age is well-represented by some of most coveted rarities in cardboard, including the T206 Cobb with Cobb back (est. $500,000+) and high-grade tributes to Cy Young (est. $120,000+) and Walter Johnson (est. $120,000+).

Other highlights include, but are not limited to:

Heritage Auctions’ Feb. 24-25 Platinum Night Auction is now open for bidding and will close in Extended Bidding format at 10 p.m. CST Feb. 24 and 25.
