Up at Heritage for auction. This is so epic on many levels. His quote was in itself amazing:

“Although I wasn't invited to shake hands with Hitler, I wasn't invited to the White House to shake hands with the President either."

It is estimated to go $10k+, but my sense given the interest in Type 1, this will likely go above it easily.

PC: Type 1 of Nat King Cole in Studio

Lots of posts of late on Type 1 photos. I've started to expand into my other love, music collecting. I love Nat King Cole and got this recently from Heritage's Entertainment Auction. They had some amazing Type 1 photos of Hollywood stars from the past. I love Nat King Cole and his velvety voice. He did a whole album of International versions -- Should check it out if you like old school classic singers.

I loved this photo showing him in studio. Just something about it instantly transports me to the first time I heard him sing Perfidia. (https://open.spotify.com/track/3QQl3tSiEooVLQvC8IT5EE?si=fbff114cfb424ac6)

RECORD SALE: Mickey Mantle Type 1 Photo sells for over $840,000

Post image 1

Add another to his estimable list of records and achievements: Mickey Mantle is now the face of the most valuable Type 1 photo ever sold at auction.

Sunday night, Heritage Auctions sold for $843,750 the photo of the New York Yankee legend used to make a trio of Mantle’s baseball cards — including his 1951 Bowman rookie card. Mantle hammers the previous record of $516,000 set by Ty Cobb on August 27, 2022, when Heritage sold the photo used for the Georgia Peach’s 1914-15 Cracker Jack card for $516,000.

Dipping my toe into the photo market

Post image 1

Love how much this community has educated me about Type 1 photography already. I've been looking around at photos to grab but prices have been outside of my 'experimentation' budget.

I found an 'original photo' of UCLA/Indian Pacers legend Reggie Miller in the most recent Heritage Auctions sale and decided to go for it. Not authenticated/slabbed, but all appears legit, and it has some markings on the back that indicate it was used by a media outlet at the time (thank you @BenchMob for helping with that nugget).

Pulled the trigger with a $15 bid (estimates were for $200+) and I guess nobody else thought it was cool because I won last night.

Planning to send to PSA when it comes in- hopefully it gets officially recognized as a Type 1.

PC: Type 1 Willie Mays Photo from Rookie Era + Polo Grounds Seat Relic Card

Post image 1

Baseball is back!!! While I'm not a Giants fan, much respect and love for the greats. Say Hey Kid is one of my favorites. This is a photo by William Jacobellis taken in early 50s from the Polo Grounds. Plus a cool card from the 2003 Topps Heritage set in the 1954 Topps design, which was an insert where they had seat relic cards.

But an early Willie Mays photo and this image speaks so many things for me. Joy, excitement, proud, and youth.
