The finest vintage Baseball Game
Collection ever assembled available for private sale
Heritage is pleased and honored to present the undisputed finest
of vintage baseball-themed board games extant to the collecting
community. Painstakingly assembled by leading hobby expert Dr. Mark
Cooper, this collection of nearly 250 games spans a full century
(1860's to 1960's). It includes some of the rarest and most
well-preserved examples known to exist. Cooper literally wrote the
book on this challenging subgenre of vintage baseball collecting
with his definitive hardcover guide Baseball Games: Home
Versions of the National Pastime. A full chapter in Stephen
Wong's Smithsonian Baseball: Inside the World's Finest Private
Collections added further luster and notoriety to this unique
assemblage, helping to establish this as one of the most noteworthy
private collections ever to be made available for private sale.
Interested parties are encouraged to contact Chris Ivy to
discuss the details of the collection, and to receive our full
brochure featuring the highlights and details of this offering.

Sunday Internet Auction
HA.com/Sports is the
place to be every Sunday night for collectors of fine sports
memorabilia and trading cards.
Over 100 lots will close to initial bidding at 10 PM CT. On a
lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid
on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there
are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot
during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended
Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on
previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that
lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45,
the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing
your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending
phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding).
No other major sports memorabilia auction house provides its
clientele this much bidding excitement. It's just another reason
why Heritage is the World's Largest Collectibles Auctioneer.
Call or email today to discuss consigning your fine sport
collectibles and trading cards to an upcoming Heritage auction.
