Heritage Sports Consignment Trip Duo Slated For April

With Heritage Auctions' highly-anticipated 2012 August Platinum Auction locked in for the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore, and a newly added Signature Auction also scheduled for the same month, Heritage Auctions sports representatives will be working harder than ever to obtain quality consignments this spring season.

Heritage sports representatives Mark Jordan and Pete Calderon will be picking up collections in the Cleveland area at the "Ohio Sports Collectors Convention," which will take place April 13-15. 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, or Pete at PeterC@HA.com at (214) 409-1789 to discuss your consignment and pickup.

Collectors in the New York metropolitan area will also have a chance to visit with a Heritage representative from April 21-22, by appointment, as Heritage Auctions will be setting up at the "Long Island National" in search of future auction pieces. To make an appointment or for more information, please contact Mark Jordan at MarkJ@HA.com or his direct line at (214) 409-1187, or Lee Iskowitz at LeeI@HA.com.

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.

Newly Discovered 1823 William Stone Printing Of The Declaration Of Independence Could Bring $250,000+

1823 printing of the Declaration Of IndependenceA newly discovered 1823 printing of the Declaration of Independence, painstakingly engraved and printed by William Stone to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the founding of The United States, is expected to bring $250,000+ when it comes across the auction block on April 11 as the centerpiece of Heritage Auctions' Historical Manuscripts Signature Auction at the Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion (Ukrainian Institute of America), 2 East 79th Street (at 5th Ave.), in New York.

"As America neared its 45th year, and was only six years removed from the end of the War of 1812, patriotism surged," said Sandra Palomino, Director of Historic Manuscripts at Heritage, "and with it, a growing interest in the Declaration of Independence. In 1820, Secretary of State John Quincy Adams commissioned English-born engraver William J. Stone of Washington, D.C. to produce an exact copy of the original Declaration of Independence onto a copperplate, a process which took him three years to complete."

In all, 200 official parchment copies were struck from the Stone plate in 1823, with one extra struck for Stone himself. Each copy is identified as "ENGRAVED by W. I. STONE for the Dept of State, by order" in the upper left corner, followed by "of J. Q. ADAMS, Sect. of State July 4th 1824" in the upper right.

"A census done of the manuscripts in 1991 located 31 copies total, of which only 12 were in private hands," said Palomino. "Although a few other copies have surfaced since then, three of the printings in private hands have been gifted to institutions, including one given to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in 2001."

Of the original 201 printed, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Charles Carroll – the last three surviving signers of the Declaration – former President James Madison, the Marquis de Lafayette, President James Monroe and Vice President Daniel D. Thompkins each received two copies. The President's House and the Supreme Court chamber were also given two copies. The House and Senate received 20 copies each. The Departments of State, War, Treasury, Justice, Navy, and Postmaster all received 12 copies, while the governors and state and territorial legislatures were each given a copy. The remaining copies were sent to various Universities and colleges.

Stone kept one copy for himself. In 1888, Stone's widow, Elizabeth J. Stone, donated his copy to the Smithsonian Institute, where it resides today.

"The copies made from Stone's copperplate established an exact rendering of the way the Declaration looked 230 years ago after it was signed by the 56 American Patriots," said Palomino. "The copy we're offering is particularly special, as it appears to be untrimmed, with evidence of the copper plate in the margins. That original copperplate is now housed in the records of the Department of State at the National Archives and Records Administration."
