    Ernest Hemingway Wine Card Signed "E. Hemingway," 3.5" x 2.5", [1933]. Matted and framed with an image of the author and an information plate for an overall size of 26" x 16.5". The card is partly printed reading "Wine Card" at the top and asking for "Required Name" and "Berth No." Hemingway, who has signed in pencil along the lower edge, has requested, among other wines, "2 Bot Champagne." The card is lightly toned and bears expected wear and light soiling. According to the information plate, "During the late summer of 1933, Ernest Hemingway signed this wine card while on board the Reina de la Pacifica. The ship had set sail from Havana, Cuba, on August and would arrive in Santander, Spain, in time for the bullfights."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
