Lunch Break: Check Your Attic, Bros

Via the Chive

A family in Ohio found in the attic of a long-deceased relative what is conservatively estitmated to be more than $3 million worth of early 20th century baseball cards. The mint-condition cards include Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Connie Mack (who is not a woman, despite what Lisa Simpson thought in the MoneyBART episode).

I'm not quite ready to brave the attic crawlspace of my rented, built-in-1906 home to poke around for hidden Ty Cobb cards but maybe one of my guy friends of my honest guy friends. And then, baseball cookies for all!


  1. for cards not in a scary attic ...July 12, 2012 at 3:23 PM

    You should just hijack the boxes of baseball cards your brother has from the 90s in your mom's storage closet. He's turned down several opportunities to take them home, so maybe they're up for grabs (or at least, he probably won't notice they're gone).

  2. Good call. I just need some bolt cutters and a plane ticket to Illinois!

  3. It helps that your brother doesn't read my blog. His lack of support comes in handy from time to time...
