    A Photograph of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Cast - Including Bill's Unofficial Foster Son Johnny Baker

    This 8" x 6" photograph of the cast of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show is superb for its detail of the cowboys' outfits and accoutrements. There are wooly chaps, a variety of six-shooters, a Winchester, and a different, individual look for each cowboy. Included in the photograph at bottom left is Johnny Baker, a young man Buffalo Bill considered his second son. Baker was a lively entertainer and carried on a friendly rivalry with the sharpshooter Annie Oakley, although he could rarely beat her in trick shooting. The photograph is in excellent condition and is matted in a marbleized cardboard matte. This is one of the most outstanding photographs ever taken of the cowboys in all their complete outfits.

    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.
