Family of Auctions

Heritage Auctions offer collectors, investors and dealers a wide range of choices for selling their valuable holdings. Heritage regularly offers several different auction options for collectibles. These auctions feature our award-winning Interactive Internet™ eCommerce auction software to maximize bidding interest and prices realized. Consistent interface and passwords are used throughout the Heritage family of auctions so any bidder who has participated in one type of auction may easily participate successfully in all of them.

Your personal Consignment Director will help you determine the best auction for your items. Below is a quick introduction to each auction venue.


Signature®, Catalog, Premier, and Platinum Night® Auctions

Signature, Catalog, Premier, and Platinum Night Auctions may be held in Heritage's main galleries in Dallas, but usually occur in other cities, often in conjunction with major conventions or collector events. Items in the auction include photography and detailed descriptions, all of which are posted online at HA.com along with vast additional information not available in the printed catalog and designed to help bidders make educated purchasing decisions while saving them time. These auctions are offered online as well as through a printed catalog, with bids accepted via telephone, fax, Internet, mail, and live during auction event.

Heritage Live®:After Internet bidding closes, live bidding will take place through www.HA.com/Live. Your secret maximum bid placed prior to the live event will compete against the live bids. To maximize your chances of winning, enter realistic secret maximum bids on our site. Many of our proxy bidders are successful at winning lots in these auctions, and usually below their secret maximum. You can also place last minute bids directly with us by e-mailing Bid@HA.com or calling 1-866-835-3243. (Important note: Due to software and Internet latency, live bids may not register in time, so enter realistic proxy bids.)

Slightly different bidding rules apply to the different session types:

  • Signature Floor Session (Live Floor, Live Phone, Mail, Fax, Internet, and Heritage Live)
    Proxy bidding ends ten minutes prior to the session start time. Live Proxy bidding on Heritage Live starts 24 hours before the live session begins and continues through the session. During the live auction event, bidding in person is encouraged, and Heritage Live includes streaming audio and often video during the event.
  • Signature Internet Session - No Floor or Phone Bidding (Mail, Fax, Internet, and Heritage Live)
    Proxy bidding ends ten minutes prior to the session start time. Live Proxy bidding on Heritage Live starts 24 hours before the live session begins and continues through the session. Check the Time Remaining on individual lots for details. These auctions are presented only online, although the lots are normally available for viewing with the Floor Session lots.

Sunday Internet Movie Poster Auctions

Sunday Internet Movie Poster Auctions: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 10 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 10 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:13. If no other bids were placed before 10:13, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 10 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 6 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:10. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
