Buckner Ball sells for a startling $418,250 at Dallas auction house
The poisoned prize from the 1986 World Series, the “Buckner Ball,” sold at auction for $418,250 — about three times the appraised value. Heritage Auction Galleries in Dallas opened the bidding at $110,000, but in a two-minute flurry that jumped in $20,000 increments, settling at $350,000 — plus a 19.5 percent auction fee. The ball was sold by Seth Swirsky, a Grammy-nominated songwriter who bought the souvenir from actor Charlie Sheen for $63,500 in 2000. Sheen purchased it from the ball’s original owner, New York Mets executive Arthur Richman, for $93,500 in 1992.

Dumped US$1.6m Ferrari up for auction in Dubai
The car, which can reach speeds of up to 217mph, was impounded by police last year after being dumped in a car park by its British owner. “There is a black Ferrari worth AED700,000 abandoned by the British owner for 15 months in our detention centre when he couldn’t pay the fines recorded on it,” an official told the newspaper. Abandoned cars became synonymous with Dubai’s debt crisis see “Ferrari” page 3

Elizabeth Taylor’s ‘Cleopatra’ cape brings $59,375
Written by Auction House PR

. . “Ferrari”
in 2009 to 2010 in which thousands of expatriates fled the emirate in a bid to escape imprisonment as a result of loan defaults. Under Dubai law, a car can be auctioned off six months after being abandoned. Potential buyers at the auction must deposit AED50,000 ahead of the sale while entry tickets cost AED110. A total of 129 cars will be auctioned at 9am Wednesday in Al Quasis. The sale will also include seven top-of-therange Porsches, Corvettes, Mercedes, BMWs, Infinitis, Range Rovers and Dodges. Dubai police have raised a total of AED10m in their last five car auctions.

DALLAS – The gold cape that Elizabeth Taylor wore as Cleopatra in two pivotal scenes in the 1963 film of the same name brought $59,375 when it crossed the block at Heritage Auctions as part of an Entertainment & Music Memorabilia auction. The cape sold to an anonymous East Coast collector. The consignor of the piece, who wished to remain anonymous, said that her mother, who worked in the couture fashion industry, purchased the famous piece from the now defunct Western Costume at some point in the years following the 1963 film’s debut. She kept it wrapped in tissue paper in a cedar closet. “I never mentioned it or showed it to anyone,” the consignor said. “When Elizabeth Taylor passed away recently I thought of the magnificent cape and realized that it was time for the cape to find its way out into the world.” The ceremonial cape from Cleopatra (20th Century Fox, 1963) is crafted to resemble the wings of a Phoenix and is

made of thin panels of gold-painted leather adorned with hand-stitched gold beads and sequins. Taylor wore the cape in two important scenes: Cleopat r a ' s d r a matic entrance to Rome the most lavish portrayal of this event in film history— and Cleopat r a ' s dramatic “exit” by asp bite. “This piece is the epito m e o f glamorous and it was worn by one of Hollywood’s greatest leading ladies at the very peak of her fame, power and beauty,” said Margaret Barrett, director of entertainment and music memorabilia at Heritage Auctions, “(It’s) an artifact of the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema worth every penny.

The Associated Press

Andy Warhol's “Double Elvis” sold for $37-million and works by Roy Lichtenstein and Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei broke their own records at Sotheby's contemporary art sale. Lichtenstein's “Sleeping Girl,” depicting a woman with closed eyes and flowing blond hair, fetched $44,882,500; Weiwei's 1-ton, handmade porcelain “Sunflower Seeds” brought $782,500. Another major work on the auction block — Francis Bacon's “Figure Writing Reflected in Mirror” — sold for $44,882,500. The buyers' names for each of the four pieces were not released. The sale came on the heels of art auction history. Last week, the auction house sold Edvard Munch's “The Scream” for $119.9-million, making it the most expensive artwork ever sold at auction. “The reason for these record-breaking sales is, quite simply, the quality of material on show,” said Michael Frahm, a contemporary art adviser at the London-based Frahm Ltd. “The key is quality.” Warhol's “Double Elvis (Ferus-

Type),” a silver silkscreen image of Elvis Presley depicted as a cowboy, fetched $37,042,500. It had been expected to sell for $30 million to $50 million. The auction house said it was the first “Double Elvis” to appear on the market since 1995. Warhol produced a series of 22 images of Elvis. Nine are in museum collections. The rock and roll heartthrob is shown armed and shooting from the hip, a shadowy Elvis figure faintly visible in the background. It was offered for sale by a private American collector, who acquired it in 1977. The record for a Warhol is $71.7 million for his “Green Car Crash — Green Burning Car I,” sold at Christie's in 2007. The “Elvis” silkscreen was exhibited at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1963, the year it was created. The auction catalogue described the work, based on a movie publicity photo, as “the deification of a contemporary warrior-saint, the towering, pre-eminent idol bearing a deadly weapon as if protecting the mythical world of celebrity itself.”

. . .”Ring”
Rey Quinones was a shortstop who played for three teams from 1986-1989 (the Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners and Pittsburgh Pirates). He held an administrative position with the Yankees in the 1996 season, thus entitling him to a ring. It was a beauty, featuring 1.5 ounces of gold, 23 brilliant round-cut diamonds (one for each Yankee championship team) plus a faux sapphire. The ring was the top lot of the nearly 750 items that crossed the block in a sale that Tim Chapulis – owner of Tim’s, Inc. – described as one of the bestCabin Fever Auctions ever. “Interest in this year’s sale was way up compared to last year,” “We started selling at 12 noon and didn’t quit 'til after midnight. It was a marathon sale packed with quality merchandise.” All prices quoted include a buyer’s premium of 15 percent for cash purchases, 18 percent for known checks and 20 percent for winning Internet bidders.

US puts James Bond stealth ship up for auction
The U.S. Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has reportedly placed the Sea Shadow stealth ship up for auction at an amazing discount. The Courier Mail reports the opening bid for the $195 million vessel was a paltry $50,000 with only a $10,000 deposit required. The latest bid was $100,000. Oh, but there is a catch. Don't think you're going to walk away with all thefun technology. The General Services Administration says the ship will be dismantled and turned to scrap before it's handed over. The Sea Shadow was an experimental vessel built in 1983 by Lockheed for the U.S. Navy, using the same technology as its aerial counterparts. Although it's been given the name Sea Shadow, it reportedly was never fully commissioned by the Navy. The ship was made famous in the James Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies" when the bad guys used it to try launching a war between Great Britain and China.

. . Buckner
The Buckner Ball is named for one of the most notorious fielding errors in the history of the game. In Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner let a slow grounder dribble through his legs. The mistake allowed the New York Mets to win the game and go on to take the Series. Buckner’s misfortune was the centerpiece of Swirsky’s fortune Friday — his 240-piece collection sold for more than $1.2 million. The Buckner Ball was billed as the auction’s prime piece. “To be perfectly honest, it opened at $110,000, and I thought it might get one more hit, maybe none,” Swirsky said. “On a good day, I thought, maybe [$200,000].” When the bidding war ensued, Swirsky said, he stood up and cheered. “The thing started to go and before I knew it, I was yelling, ‘Come on baby, come on,’” he said, laughing. “And when it hit 418 or whatever it was, I just couldn’t believe it.” Swirsky predicted that whoever purchased the ball — he secretly hopes it was the New York Mets — is in for a wild ride. “One day,” he said, “that ball’s going to be worth a million dollars.”John Blake, executive vice president of communications for the Texas Rangers, said he doesn’t know about that, but he understands the souvenir’s mystique. He grew up in Boston as a Red Sox fan and worked for the team when it won the 2007 World Series. He wondered out loud about Friday’s selling price of $418,250. “It’s a lot of money for that baseball, and to the average person it may seem excessive. To me it seems a little excessive,” Blake said. “But if you grew up in Boston following the Red Sox through the trials and tribulations, you can understand what kind of impact it had.” Buckner’s bad luck came to symbolize the team’s legendary “curse of the Bambino” — an 86-year run without a World Series championship that began after the team sold slugger Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees after the 1919 season.

1949 Bigsby guitar hits high note in Heritage sale: $266,500
Written by Auction House PR

FISHING EQUIPMENT, GUNS, BASS TENDER 10.2 W/ 4.4 HP. HONDA, PROCRAFT 1750 V 150 MARINER

A B S O LU T E

DALLAS - The crowd of guitar collectors, aficionados and curiosity seekers was held breathless for 10 solid minutes as two bidders went head-to-head and bid-for-bid over a stunning 1949 Bigsby bird'seye maple solid body electrc guitar – just the fourth guitar made by the famous shop – with the eventual winner triumphing to wide applause with a price realized of $266,500 to lead Heritage Auctions’ Vintage Guitars and Musical Instruments Signature® Auction at The Dallas Guitar Show. “The auction of this amazing Bigsby was one of the most exciting moments I’ve ever experienced at an auction,” said Mike Gutierrez, consignment director at Heritage Auctions. “The room was packed, the crowd was jazzed and the guitar brought double what Heritage had ever sold any guitar for.” The auction overall realized north of $1.5+ million, with 409 lots total in the auction, translating into a 94.3% sellthrough rate by total value. All prices include 25% buyer’s premium. While the price did not approach that of the 1949 Bigsby, collectors were impressed with the $46,875 price realized by a beautiful 1955 Fender Stratocaster sunburst solid body electric guitar, serial # 6525, which brought more than 21/2 times its pre-auction estimate of $18,000+. “If this auction and this guitar are any indication – and I think we can safely say they are – then vintage Fenders are definitely coming back,” said Gutierrez. “Fenders certainly ranked as the most interesting pieces of bidding in this auction. Owners of these early Strats would do very well to take a long look at their guitars right now and consider the current market.”
