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 10:00 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.

Apollo 11 Flown Crew-Signed Commemorative Cover Could Bring $40,000+ At Heritage Auctions

Apollo 11 Flown Crew-Signed Commemorative Cover
 An Apollo 11 flown Commemorative Cover, signed by the crew directly from the collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, could sell for $40,000+ leads a stellar line up of space-flown objects and important private collections in Heritage Auctions' Nov. 1 Space Exploration Signature® Auction in Dallas.

One of the more unusual items saw more time in space than any other item in the auction, said Michael Riley, Chief Cataloger for Space at Heritage Auctions. A 50-page section of a microform copy of The Bible, flown around the moon on the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission only later to be carried to the moon's surface during Apollo 14's mission, is expected to bring $8,000+. The evocative fragment — one of just 32 astronaut flight certified examples that exists — is also unique in that its pages include Genesis 1:16, the verse in which the moon is created.

"The fact that it was on not one but two flown lunar missions — especially Apollo 13 and then to the surface — makes it rare," Riley said. "That it includes the only verse which describes the creation of the Moon makes it a true treasure."

Apollo 11 Flown American Flag on a Crew-Signed Presentation Certificate, Framed.
Additional items flown on lunar missions include an American flag that accompanied Apollo 11 to the surface of the moon and later signed on a presentation certificate by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin, could sell for $25,000+, and an Apollo 16 Robbins Medallion, one of only 98 flown and directly from the collection of Mission Commander John Young, is expected to bring $10,000+. A rare Apollo 16 Module lunar orbit chart, as flown to the moon's surface, is expected to fetch $8,000+.

Another one-of-a-kind piece of Space Race memorabilia includes a hand-written note on an Apollo 11 notecard by Neil Armstrong sent to a 9-year-old girl in 1969. In it Armstrong thanks her for a letter and answers a pressing question by explaining that "the Moon is quite a nice place to visit." The letter and hand-addressed envelope are made all the more desirable since it was written between Armstrong's return from the moon and his leaving on the "Giant Leap" world tour in late September 1969 and it could sell for $5,000+.

Apollo 11: Neil Armstrong Training-Used Beta Cloth Boots (Pair) with Original Tagging.
Among the more unusual space memorabilia crossing the block Nov. 1 is a pair of Neil Armstrong's training-used beta cloth boots, which could fetch $10,000+, and a 1918 edition of Jules Verne's classic From the Earth to the Moon — which presents no less than 10 eerily prophetic similarities to the real U.S. Apollo space program — and signed by 11 Apollo Astronauts, is expected to bring $3,500+.

Additional highlights include but are not limited by:

Two important collections: the first from the personal belongings of longtime NASA photojournalist Andrew "Pat" Patnesky, led by a signed photograph of Mercury Seven Astronauts, which is expected to bring $5,000+; and personal items of Gemini Program Office special assistant Paul M. Sturtevant, which includes a lithograph of a "Mercury Spacecraft" signed by seven astronauts, and expected to sell for $12,000+.

A one dollar bill signed by Astronaut John Glenn after it was flown on Mercury-Atlas 6 (Friendship 7), is expected to bring $8,000+.

A group of 11 mustard seeds flown on Gemini 4 and a personal photo album filled with 36 original NASA glossy photos from the collection of Ed White II, could bring $6,000+.

Numerous models, including a Saturn IB Marshall Space Flight Center launch vehicle on base, from the 1960s, could fetch $3,000+.
