6. $3 million Worth Of baseball Cards Were Discovered In a family’s Attic.

In February 2011, Karl Kissner found 700 rare baseball cards that belonged to his grandfather, Carl Hench, who died in the 1940s. Karl was cleaning his attic when he saw the box stashed under a wooden dollhouse. When he opened it, he saw a bunch of old cards that didn’t look like any he had seen before. This large collection was described by experts as “the biggest, most exciting find in the history of sports card collecting, a discovery probably worth millions.”

In August 2011, the family decided to sell some of the cards during the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore. Experts say that the cards might bring up to $2-3 million to Karl and his family.
