    1939 Babe Ruth & Ty Cobb Donate Baseball Memorabilia to World's Fair Display Original News Photograph.
    New York hosted the World's Fair in 1939 to the delight of our great nation. The Academy of Sport had to have been a main attraction given the memorabilia donated by these three. Babe Ruth is passing along a home run crown, Mrs. James J. Corbett has one of her husband's canes and Ty Cobb is waiting to donate a pair of spikes for inclusion. Cobb looks a bit hesitant though. The 11x7" photo has an "International News Photo" stamp and typed paper caption (not affixed).

    Auction Type
    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.
