19th Century cabinet cards, century-old Dodgers uniforms, highlight May Heritage Sports Auction Fresh-to-the-market cabinet cards from HOFer Buck Ewing's family and a pair of 1913 Brooklyn uniforms among recently-revealed sports collectibles treasures highlighting May 2- 4 auction
are a 1976 Silver and 1980 Gold Medal won by Cuban boxer Andres Aldama.
This auction’s trophy case provides still more sparkle in the form of Championship awards from four of the greatest practitioners of pre-war golf and tennis, with fresh offerings from the incomparable careers of Jim Barnes, Alexa Stirling, Ellsworth Vines and Helen Wills.
After creating a bidding frenzy in Heritage’s February Platinum Night auction, the Dr. Mark Cooper Collection of Vintage Baseball Games, featured in the acclaimed volume Smithsonian Baseball: Inside the World’s Finest Private Collections, provides dozens of new targets for those collectors with a concentration in this intriguing subgenre.
The auction is divided into three sessions: Trading Cards on Thursday, May 2; Memorabilia on Friday, May 3, and Final Session on Saturday, May 4, with each lot closing in Extended Bidding format after 30 minutes of inactivity.
“With no live floor session, we’re encouraging bidders to place early initial bids to widen their options during the Extended Bidding period,” said Ivy.
Heritage Auctions, headed by Steve Ivy, Jim Halperin and Greg Rohan, is the world’s third largest auction house, with annual sales more than $600 million, and 500,000+ online bidder members.
