Sports Experts To Hit Southern California and Philly During September Consignment Trips

With Heritage Auctions' October Signature Auction consignment deadline right around the corner, our sports experts will be travelling to Southern California and Philadelphia this month in order to view large collections, which would be suitable for what is shaping up to be our largest and one of our most impressive auctions to date.

Collectors in the Southern California area will have a chance to visit with Heritage representative Mark Jordan from September 6-8, at the Long Beach Coin, Stamp & Collectibles Expo (booth #1337). In addition, Mark will also be at Heritage's Beverly Hills office Monday, September 10, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM PT. To make an appointment, or for more information, please contact Mark Jordan at MarkJ@HA.com or his direct line at (214) 409-1187.

Heritage sports representatives Mark Jordan and Lee Iskowitz will also be picking up quality consignments in the Philadelphia area from September 28-30 at "The Philly Show," at the Valley Forge Convention Center.

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.

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.

Website Tips: Heritage Password Changes

We have recently made a number of changes to our website to increase security. These changes largely involve passwords and when and how you enter them.

  1. All passwords are now encrypted. This means that nobody at Heritage has access to them.

  2. All passwords, including existing ones, are now case-sensitive. This may mean that a password you have using for a while may suddenly no longer work, especially if it's a password that you did not enter.

  3. If you forget your password and click on the "Forgot Password" link, we will now take you to a page where you can reset your password, rather than requesting your password to be sent to your email address.

    When you get to this page, enter your email address, and we will send you an email with a link to enter a new password of your choice.

    If you know your password, you can still change it through MyProfile, as always.

  4. All new passwords at HA.com, whether entered through MyProfile, the password reset page, or by signing up as a new member, must be at least eight characters long and include at least three of the following: Lower case letters (a-z), Upper case letters (A-Z), numbers (0-9), or special characters.

  5. HA.com no longer asks you for your username and password on the same page on which you place your bids. If you are bidding from an item page, by default you will be taken to a new page that will ask for your username and password, regardless of whether you're already logged in. To get around this, check "Remember my password for bidding" as you sign in.

    Search pages no longer display bid boxes unless you are signed in; instead they will ask you to sign in to bid. Once signed in, you will be able to place bids by simply clicking the "Submit Batch Bids" button.

    MyBids, MyTrackedLots, and MyWantlistMatches also no longer ask for your sign-in information to place bids. Because you must be signed in to reach these pages, you need only click the "Submit Batch Bids" button.

  6. If you try to track a lot while not signed in, whether on the search page or an individual item page, you will be taken to a sign-in page. Once you've signed in, your lot will be tracked.

Furnishings, Legal Ephemera And Art That Once Decorated The University Of Texas School Of Law Library

American Carved Wood Eagle
The Elton Hyder III Collection will be offered in Dallas and online on Sept. 13 as part of our Estate Signature Auction at the company's Dallas Design District Annex, 1518 Slocum Street.

"For many UT alums and prominent lawyers in Texas, this collection will take them back to the days when they were studying for the bar," said Brian Roughton, Director of Heritage's Department of Fine Arts. "For collectors with a fondness for law and historical artifacts, it's a bonanza of fascinating art and documents as well as stately library furniture."

The collection features more than 500 items collected by Elton Hyder, Jr., once on loan to the expansive law library in Austin.

"Hyder's objective for this collection was to give the Library a sense of history within the law," said Roughton. "In the contemporary Internet world, however, the UT School of Law no longer needs floors of library space and has begun converting into faculty offices, negating much of the need for this furniture and art. Consequently, Elton Hyder III and his wife want to share it with fellow alumni, the art world and interested individuals."

George Washington painting
Among the choice items being auctioned on Sept. 13 are a working Continental Cannon (estimate: $4,000+), a framed display containing 17 19th Century English Truncheons (estimate: $6,000+), a large oil painting, "George Washington" after a Gilbert Stuart original (estimate: $10,000+) and a "William III" portrait with a crown pediment (estimate: $8,000+), all of which decorated the halls of the Law Library for years.

The bulk of the collection is based around historical prints and manuscripts, which exhibit judicial proceedings and ideas. One example is an exquisite framed 1708 print "Queen Anne Illuminated Manuscript in Latin on Parchment, Exemplification of a Recovery, Buckinghamshire, 1708" (estimate: $2,000+). Another highlight is a 19th century "George the Fifth by the Grace of God," Illuminated Manuscript with Royal Seal (estimate: $2,500+).

17th century Italian Renaissance Style Walnut, Glass and Iron Bookcase
Star lots include a 17th century Italian Renaissance Style Walnut, Glass and Iron Bookcase (estimate: $6,000+), a Spanish Baroque wood and Ivory Vargueno and Tranquillo (estimate: $1,500) and a stunning Italian Renaissance Style Painted Wood Bench (estimate: $6,000+).

Among the judicial offerings are four English Barristers Wigs with provenance linking them to established judges. One such example belonged to Charles Dickson Esq. (estimate: $1,500+), with an archival photograph displayed with the wig under a Plexiglas case.

"This is a collection where the worlds of law, art and history intersect," said Roughton. "We think collectors, lawyers and UT alums alike will find unique pieces that will have special meaning to each one of them."
