A Family Found $1 Million Worth of Ty Cobb Baseball Cards in an Old Paper Bag
A family, who have chosen to remain anonymous, discovered a neglected cache of baseball cards likely valued at more than $1 million in a deceased relative’s home, the Associated Press reports. The cards feature Ty Cobb—aka “the Georgia Peach,” a famed Detroit slugger.
The cache apparently contains seven baseball cards worth seven figures in total. The identical prints date from the period between 1909 and 1911, and are from one of the most prized baseball card lots called T206.
Prior to the find, only 15 such cards were thought to be in existence, the AP reports.
