    H.E. TOUGH RIDERS - YELLOWSTONE PARK - LARGE FORMAT IMPERIAL CARD - circa 1899 This is a great large format Imperial card photograph of Howard Eaton's Tough Riders in Yellowstone Park. The image is very crisp and sharp with excellent contrast, showing men and boys of various ages in cowboy gear. Some of the men possibly worked for Eaton, there is an older Asian man to the rear behind Eaton. On the reverse of the photo in pencil someone has written, "Howard Eaton on White horse". The card measures 10.75"x 8.5" and has one very minor fold that runs along the top.

    Howard Eaton was an early Yellowstone Park guide and outfitter, and a trail is currently named after him. The trail runs, "from Clematis Gulch, just behind Liberty Cap, in Mammoth, to Swan Lake Flat, and then through the west edge of the Hoodoo Mts" and is still currently used by hikers.

    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.
