Two years ago a family discovered seven Ty Cobb baseball cards in a paper bag at the house of a deceased great-grandfather. The seven Cobb cards were valued at $1 million, which made them one of the greatest finds in the history of sports memorabilia.
Well, that same family was digging through great-grandpa's stuff again and found an eighth Ty Cobb baseball card, valued at $250,000, tucked between two books.
The amazing thing is, this guy wasn't even a baseball card collector. He just held onto the cards that were probably given to him after buying a certain brand of tobacco.
And because he held onto these cards, his relatives today are rich. How's that for a lucky break? (News.com.au)
