You never know what your ancestors can do for you. A man cleaning out his recently-deceased great-grandfather’s house made an amazing find. A neglected paper bag in the run-down house contained seven identical Ty Cobb cards from the printing period of 1909 to 1911. Before the recent find, there were only about 15 known to still exist. The seven cards are estimated to have a total value of $1 million or more.
It’s not yet clear what the family who found them intends to do with the cards.
