Need some motivation for spring cleaning? Well, how about finding about a million dollars worth of baseball cards?
A Southern family, who opted to remain anonymous, found seven Ty Cobb baseball cards in a paper bag in their great-grandfather's home after he died. They took the cards to a dealer in South Carolina, and it was smooth sailing to the bank from there.
Joe Orlando, the man who authenticated the cards, tweeted, "There have been some amazing discoveries in our hobby, but I'm not sure if any find is better than the one we saw today. Simply incredible."
