Heritage Amazing Sports Auctions Internet 44081

Dallas, Texas: Heritage's Amazing Sports Auctions (ASA) sale #44081 ended Sunday, August 29, 2004. 116 bidders placed bids, and 57 of them were successful, for a total sell-through of $14,523.88.

A few highlights from the 08/29/04 ASA sale are:

Baseball 1957 TOPPS TED WILLIAMS #1 NM/MT PSA 8.
Late-career card of Boston Red Sox HOF outfielder Ted Williams. Card displays nice centering, four sharp corners, clean white borders, vivid coloring and registration, and is clean front and back. Realized $1,075.50.

Baseball 1964 TOPPS EDDIE MATHEWS #35 Mint PSA 9.
Milwaukee Braves HOFer and 500-HR club member Ed Mathews is featured on this mint Topps card. Only 6 of the 177 examples of this card submitted have received the MINT 9 designation, with none grading higher. Card features beautiful centering, four sharp corners, brilliant coloring and registration, and is clean both front and back. Realized $609.45.

Baseball 1950 BOWMAN DUKE SNIDER #77 NM/MT PSA 8.
The HOF outfielder Duke Snider is portrayed in this early Brooklyn Dodgers card. Card exhibits nice centering, four sharp corners, clean borders, bright coloring and registration, and is clean front and back. Realized $549.70.

Baseball 1928 HARRINGTON ICE CREAM BABE RUTH #6 ICE CREAM VG/EX PSA 4.
The Harrington's Ice Cream issue shares the same format and checklist with several other (Tharp's, Yeungling's, Sweetman, etc.) contemporary ice cream sets. The 60-card set includes all of the top stars of the day; none bigger than the slugging HOFer from the New York Yankees, Babe Ruth. Fortunately, this Ruth card was not traded for a quart of ice cream. Card exhibits clean white borders, four strong corners, nice color and registration, and is relatively clean front and back. Realized $513.85.
