Dozens of world records toppled in $9.4M Heritage Sports Card Auction
The 1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Near Set (314/316) had a pre-auction estimate of $200,000 and sold for: $324,000.

DALLAS, TX.- The world’s largest collectibles auctioneer further validated its status as the industry leader last week as its three-day, 3,000+ lot trading card auction commanded more than $9,437,190 on the strength of dozens of world-record results. This final major sale of the year carries Heritage Sports’ auction tally to over $70 million for the year.

“We saw great prices across all eras and genres,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions for Heritage. “The entrenched vintage collectors came out in force, and the modern market is continuing to gain strength and market share.”

Perhaps the happiest consignor in the event was the owner of the 1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Near Set (314/316), which saw a pre-auction estimate of $200,000 dwarfed by the $324,000 result. Other top performers included a 1911 T205 Gold Border Walter Johnson, PSA NM-MT 8, for $63,000 and a 1922 E121 American Caramel Babe Ruth (Holding Ball), PSA Mint 9, for $75,000.

Likewise, the late 20th and early 21st centuries rocketed to new heights as a 1993 SP Derek Jeter #279, PSA Gem Mint 10, drew $138,000 and a 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection LeBron James Rookie Patch Autograph #78, BGS Mint 9, sold for $228,000. The iconic 1986-87 Fleer Basketball Wax Box, beloved for its fabled Michael Jordan rookie, set a new hobby standard at $84,000.

Other highlights include:

• $43,200: 1902-11 W600 Sporting Life (Type 4) Miller Huggins, SGC 84 NM 7

• $37,200: 1909-11 T206 Drum Tris Speaker, SGC PR 1

• $69,000: 1925 Exhibits Lou Gehrig, PSA VG 3

• $66,000: 1933 Uncle Jacks Candy Unopened Pack Babe Ruth, PSA NM 7

• $57,600: 1951 Parkhurst Maurice Richard #4, PSA Mint 9

• $765,000: 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311, PSA NM-MT+ 8.5

• $42,000: 1952 Topps Baseball 5-Cent Unopened Wax Pack, PSA NM 7

• $36,000: 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan #57, PSA Gem Mint 10

Heritage Auctions’ next major sports auction is Jan. 16 when it presents The David Hall T206 Collection Part III. On Jan. 30, a special sale of the 1952 Topps & 1953 Topps PSA Set Registry Auction will be held in extended bidding formation on
