    Description

    1969 Topps Lew Alcindor #25 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Much like artifacts related to Cassius Clay, collectors are particularly drawn to pieces predating this Hall of Fame legend's conversion to Islam and subsequent name change to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The amplified dimensions of these "tall boy" cards have made such clean examples a rare find, so collectors should pay very close attention to this lot.

    Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. One of five in NM-MT+ with nineteen rated higher which represent the top 1% of the over 2,400 graded by PSA. High-quality corners, problem-free and close to perfect centering which seems to be the lone reason for the PSA assessment. Rookie cards of Hall of Famers have been the hottest commodity lately. This is the rookie debut of a basketball and overall sports legend! This could prove a smart acquisition for the investor or Hall of Fame rookie specialist.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $15,000 - up.

    Signature®: Heritage Live!┬« Floor Sessions
    Auctions designated as "Heritage Live" have continuous bidding from the time the auction is posted on our site through the live event. When normal Internet bidding ends ten minutes before the floor session for each lot, you can visit HA.com/Live and continue to place Live Proxy bids. Your secret maximum bids placed prior to the live event will compete against the live bids. When the item hits the auction block, you can continue to bid live through HA.com/Live against the floor and other live bidders with streaming audio and video of the auction. You also have the option to bid live by phone. Call (800) 872-6467 Ext. 1150 and ask for phone bidding assistance at least 24 hours prior to the live auction.

    Signature® Sessions With Extended Bidding These sessions 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) 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.
