Description1947 Abbott & Costello Dual-Signed Boxing Ticket. Perhaps no other comedy duo are as warmly remembered as Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. With their roots reaching back to the days of vaudeville and transcending through radio, movies and finally television, the two men made generations of Americans laugh with wild abandon. Who can forget "Whos on First?" or "Two Tens for a Five" or "Susquehanna Hat Company"? Each bit is as funny and fresh as it was when it debuted.
Offered is a 3x8" boxing ticket that the dynamic comedy duo has each signed - Abbott in graphite and Costello in blue fountain pen. An attractive display piece that exhibits only mild wear. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
Guide Value or Estimate: $250 - up.
Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: 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 15 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 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
