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.

Website Tips: Do's and Don'ts For
Sending Images To Heritage
Every day Heritage receives thousands of emails and phone calls
from clients all over the world asking us to evaluate their
property. Almost always, our first response is: send us a
photograph of the item. The old adage "A picture is worth a
thousand words" is very true... but only when the "picture"
provides useful information. Here's a list of basic do's and don'ts
when sending photographs of your property to our specialists for
DO send photographs that are in focus and have enough light
to see the item being photographed.
If you can't see what it is, then we can't either.
DON'T email photographs larger than 1MB each.
Larger-sized digital photographs are easier to zoom in and see the
details, but too many extremely large photographs in one email
completely crashes our computer system. Use a zip file if you need
to send more than a dozen images. On the other hand...
DON'T email photographs too small.
Digital photographs less than 100KB are so small that we can't see
the item well enough to give an opinion on its age, quality, and
DO check your images before you click Send.
More often than you would think, we receive someone's personal
photographs attached to the email by mistake. It doesn't take but a
second to double check that you are sending the correct images.
Some of you sure throw some wild parties!
DON'T send photographs with large glares.
Camera flashes and direct sunlight often produce glares in
photographs, especially on pieces that are framed with glass or
have very shiny surfaces. If your piece is framed, you may have to
remove the glass in order to photograph it.
DO send photographs of the entire front and the entire
Close-up photographs are great, but don't forget to send us a
photograph of the overall front and back of the piece(s). We don't
want to miss anything important because it was cropped out of the
photograph. Note — it's generally OK to send photographs of only
one side of comic books, sportscards, or movie posters.
DO send a detail of the signature and any other markings, if
you are inquiring about any kind of artwork or autograph.
Signatures, dates, titles, inscriptions, labels — they are all
important and the detail images that you send assist us in
determining the best value for your piece.
