Sunday Internet Auction Highlights
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.

Charity KidSwing Golf Tournaments Auction
The KidSwing Golf
Tournament was founded in 2003 by former Texas Scottish Rite
Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patient, Ben Sater. When he
discovered that patients receive treatment regardless of their
ability to pay, he decided to use his love for golf to give back to
the hospital by creating KidSwing, a 9-hole, best-ball scramble for
players ages 7 to 18 of all levels of golf ability.
KidSwing is a unique fundraising concept that is
unparalleled. Unlike other charity golf tournaments, KidSwing is
all about kids helping kids and gives local businesses and
corporations the opportunity to help.
There is no entry fee to play in the tournament, but players are
encouraged to raise $100 by asking their friends and families to
sponsor them. Building on the tremendous success of the original
KidSwing-Dallas, two more tournaments were created —
KidSwing-McKinney in 2008 and KidSwing-Trophy Club in 2011. More
than 300 players participated in the Dallas, McKinney, and Trophy
Club tournaments in 2012. Since its inception, KidSwing has raised
an astounding $1.4 million for TSRHC.
