The finest vintage Baseball Game Collection ever assembled available for private sale

Heritage is pleased and honored to present the undisputed finest compilation 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.

Highlights Of The Collection Include

Our National Game of Base Ball

Clarkson/Brouthers Champion Game Base Ball

Goose Goslin's Scientific Baseball Game

Reed's Game of Base Ball

Fortune Teller Chicago vs Boston

Walter Johnson, Brown Version

Sunday Internet Auction Highlights

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.

Heritage Sports Experts To Hit California and New York During January Consignment Trips

With Heritage Auctions' April 2012 Signature Auction right around the corner, our sports card and memorabilia experts will be travelling to California and New York for, what we hope to be, one of the most successful consignment trips during the first part of the New Year.

Heritage sports representative Mark Jordan will be in the Northern California area January 14-22 picking up quality consignments, with the majority of his time to be spent in San Jose and Santa Rosa areas. If you have vintage sports cards, autographs or memorabilia please contact Mark in advance at MarkJ@HA.com or his direct line at (214) 409-1187 to discuss your consignment and pickup.

East Coast collectors will also have a chance to visit with Heritage representatives, as we will be set up at the White Plains Sports Card Show on January 20-22 (Friday through Sunday) at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY. Featuring 300 tables, the popular show will host an impressive array of autograph guests, including Mike Piazza, John Franco, Mason Williams, Goose Gossage and others. To make an appointment with one of Heritage's sports experts in the White Plains area, please contact Derek Grady at DerekG@HA.com, (214) 409-1975 or Lee Iskowitz at LeeI@HA.com, (214) 409-1601.

Website Tips: Take 4 months to pay

For our many clients who see something they want in one of our auctions, but may not have enough cash on hand to immediately pay for it, we are pleased to offer an Extended Payment Plan for many of our Signature and Grand Format auctions.

The features of the plan are as follows:

  • Minimum invoice total is $2,500.
  • You may take up to four (4) months to pay the balance (monthly payments of at least 1/6th of invoice total).
  • Interest is calculated at only 1% per month (12% annually) on the unpaid balance, and must be kept current.
  • Minimum down payment is 25% within two weeks of the sale date. All down payments made beyond this 2 week window will require a 35% down payment, and the term will be shortened to 3 months.
  • to a refundable 3% set-up fee, which will be paid as part of your 1st monthly installment. This fee will be refundable upon completion of the plan if the following conditions are satisfied:
    • All payments (including the down payment) must be made on-time per your specific EPP schedule (there will be a brief grace period).
    • All payments must be made using one or a combination of the following payment methods: cash, check, cashier's check, eCheck, money order, or bank draft.
  • There is no penalty for paying off early.
  • Non-dealers only
  • With pre-approved credit application

All traditional sales policies still apply. Due to the nature of the business and market volatility, there is no return privilege once you have confirmed your sale, and penalties can be incurred on cancelled orders. To participate in this program, follow these steps:

  1. Get pre-approved by filling out a credit application.
  2. Bid normally and win some lots.
  3. Heritage will maintain possession of all the lots until paid in full. Therefore, you must notify us of your intent to use our Extended Payment Plan on or before the day of the auction. All pre-shipped material must be returned to Heritage in order for the plan to be in effect.
  4. When you get your electronic invoice, select "other" from the payment options.
  5. Send an e-mail to CreditDept@HA.com indicating the invoice number and your intention to use the Extended Payment Plan.

The Extended Payment Plan is also available for inventory items available directly from Heritage. Terms are similar, except that you may take up to 4 months to pay, the minimum down payment is 20%, and the minimum invoice total is $2,000.

The Extended Payment Plan is not offered for Weekly Internet Auctions and may not be available on specific items or for specific Signature and Grand Format auctions. Please review the home page of the auction and item you are interested in to confirm that the Extended Payment Plan is available.
