Rare collection of baseball cards worth millions
An Ohio man named Karl Kissner found a box of old baseball cards in his father’s attic. The cards are an extremely rare series issued around 1910. Up to now the few known cards to exist were in “so so” condition at best, but the ones found by Kissner are vibrant, and the borders of the cards crisp and white. The 700 cards have been estimated to be worth up to $3,000,000 dollars. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Robert Lopez spoke with Bob Smith, Owner of Home Court Sports, a sports memorabilia store in Gainesville, about just how rare this card collection is.
