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.

Charity KidSwing Golf Tournaments Auction #542

Charity KidSwing Golf TournamentsThe 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.
