Attention to any Bros that still collect baseball cards: keep them. Those rare Derek Jeter, Albert Pujols, and Roy Halladay gems may get you a little something in 90 years. Not planning on living into the 22nd century? Be the “cool” great-grandpa that made your family millions.
A family in Ohio is set to cash in big time on what an expert is calling, “The most significant find in the history of the hobby.” 51-year-old Karl Kissner was going through his deceased bro grandfather’s attic when he stumbled upon 700 cards in perfect condition. The finds include Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Honus Wagner, and enough 1910 edition cards to double the amount known to be in existence. 20 family members are ready to split about $2.8 million, while the most valuable cards are going up for auction August 2 at Camden Yards.
Were not sure how Tyler Durden didn't find the cards first.
Not bad for a trip to grandma and grandpa’s.
