Heritage presents special vintage sports photography auction
Circa 1920 Babe Ruth Original Photograph by Charles Conlon, PSA/DNA Type 1.

DALLAS, TX.- The world’s largest collectibles auctioneer has added a new sale to its summer roster, a carefully curated assembly of more than 200 lots featuring elite photographs from 20th century American sports. Now open for bidding, the auction is expected to garner more than $400,000 in sales when the gavel drops Aug. 23 in extended bidding format.

“Vintage photography might be the most dynamic subset of the sports collectibles marketplace right now,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports auctions for Heritage Auctions. “The massive surge in pricing is a relatively recent phenomenon, and plenty of investors believe we’re still quite early in the genre’s growth.”

As is the case in many sports collectibles auctions, Babe Ruth is expected to dominate the top of the results once the final bids are cast, with a rarely-seen 1919 Red Sox card and a glorious 1920 Yankees shot likely to compete for the top lot honors.

Also on tap is the Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Babe Bows Out” photograph from his 1948 Yankee Stadium farewell. Ruth’s legendary sidekick, Lou Gehrig, appears in a highly-desirable “Luckiest Man” photo, while a fantastic rookie image of Mickey Mantle may set a new record for the “Commerce Kid.”

Other highlights include:

· 1984 Michael Jordan Original Photograph from First NBA Game, PSA/DNA Type 1

· 1937 Ted Williams San Diego Padres Minor League Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1

· 1934 Tour of Japan Original Team Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1

· 1927 New York Yankees Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1

· 1955-56 Roberto Clemente Original Photograph by Don Wingfield, PSA/DNA Type 1

Now open for bidding, Heritage Auctions’ Vintage Sports Photography Catalog Auction will end in extended bidding format Aug. 23 on
