Collector's Call Web Extras: Autographed sports art worth millions

Rick found out what Patrick Ewing will and won't sign, the hard way.

Accountant and philanthropist Rick Heinz has been collecting sports memorabilia and art for more than 40 years. Some of his more storied treasures include a blazer signed by nearly 200 NFL Hall of Famers, a rare collection of NBA legends, and several baseballs autographed by former U.S. presidents.

We brought along sports memorabilia appraiser Michael Osacky, who estimated Rick's massive collection to be worth at least $1,000,000.

Take a closer look at Rick's big-ticket items — a couple things we weren't able to fit in the show!

This pretty oil painting depicts all the Triple Crown winners post 1948 — Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978), American Pharoah (2015) and Justify (2018). Rick has the signature of all but one of the jockeys.

I don't know why METV took down the first page they had about this, but they did. Anybody else see this?: There was one comment on it. Some guy was disappointed that the collector Rick Heinz didn't have anything from the NHL, and he likes hockey. I was going to check and see if anyone else had commented and that's when I found out the page doesn't exist. {Which it did.} I was going to comment: Why should he care what Mr. Heinz has in his collection; it's his collection, not yours. He has what he has, because that's what he likes. Let me know if any of you saw this as well. Thanks!
Yes, you are correct about an NHL comment disappearing.
