An extraordinarily comprehensive assembly from the Midsummer Classic1933-2017 Major League Baseball All-Star Game Programs Complete Run of 123. Certainly the lot title will inspire instant confusion, so we'll start by addressing the abnormally large population of programs contained within this special offering. Beginning in the year 2001, a tradition was begun of printing All-Star Game programs with an array of different covers. Each variation appears within this fully comprehensive offering. And, of course, from 1959 through 1962, Major League Baseball briefly toyed with hosting two All-Star Games annually, further amplifying the census of publications ready to tempt all fans of the sport's most heralded exhibition.
The voluminous lot is the perfect complement to the full run of All-Star tickets likewise on offer within this Platinum Night event, each assembly the result of hours of labor expended by our consignor, who considered quality as well as completion as he went about his duties.
The condition, rather predictably, improves with each subsequent decade, the 1930's ranging from Poor to VG, the 1940's from Fair to EX-MT, the 1950's and 1960's from VG-EX to NRMT, the 1970's from EX-MT to NRMT, and the 1980's through 2017 all NRMT or better. A full, itemized condition report will be available at our online listing.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. 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) 30 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 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). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. 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.
