Your Heritage October Signature Sports Memorabilia Auction Catalog Is Now Online

The catalog for the 2009 October Signature Sports Memorabilia Auction #716 has been posted on the Heritage website. Location:  Dallas, TX – Auction:  2009 October Signature Sports Memorabilia Auction #716 – Auction Dates:  October 1-2, 2009 –  Note:  Internet Absentee Bidding Ends at 10 PM CT the night before the floor session of any particular lot. Attention card collectors browsing Session 1 — get your initial bids in as early as possible. Opening bids are set very low, and when Extended Bidding begins on October 1 at 10 PM, you’ll only be able to continue competing for lots upon which you have already placed a bid. Entering early bids now will leave the most possible options for winning lots in the auction’s final hours.

Heritage Auction Galleries has just announced a new online feature — Heritage LIVE! Budget Bidding — that will afford budget-conscious buyers greater control over their spending while participating via Heritage’s real-time proprietary internet bidding platform.

The budget function will monitor all the money spent through Heritage LIVE! and — depending on the pre-determined auction specific limits — adjusts LiveProxy bids, lowering or cancelling them if it would mean going over budget. The budget feature will automatically let the bidder win lots up to, but not beyond, their budget.
