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!

2. Bonus Video: Chris Evert painting by Malcolm Farley
With 18 Grand Slam championships, Chris Evert is one of the biggest names of tennis' boom era. She signed this bright painting by sports artist Malcolm Farley.
3. Bonus Video: Triple Crown Winners Art with Autographs
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.
