About Heritage Auctions
Heritage Auctions recently surpassed two world records in sports memorabilia sales. Heritage Auctions, the world's third largest auction house, pulled in more than $4.2 million at the Signature Sports Memorabilia Auction held in October 2009. The Heritage Auctions' quarterly event featured items from a variety of star athletes of bygone eras. High-profile keepsakes included a Louisville Slugger baseball bat swung by Babe Ruth during the 1918 World Championship season. The game bat sold for more than $537,000 at the Heritage Auctions sale. According to a Heritage Auctions staff member, the selling price was the highest ever paid for an un-autographed bat used by the former Boston Red Sox player.
