DescriptionHarvey Kuenn Signed Postcard Lot of 5.
Making consecutive All-Star teams in first eight full seasons in the big leagues along with receiving MVP votes each year, Harvey Kuenn was a bonafide star, picking up Rookie of the Year honors in 1953 and leading the league in hits four times. A trade to Cleveland in 1960 sent is playing career on a downward spiral, but his life in baseball was far from over. A longtime coach and interim manager for his hometown Milwaukee Brewers Kuenn and "Harvey's Wallbangers" made it all the way to the World Series in 1982 before falling to the St. Louis Cardinals. Kuenn would be fired a year later as the Brew Crew underperformed, but would serve as a scout in the organization for the rest of his life.

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.
