Family Finds Highly Valuable Set Of Baseball Cards In Deceased Relative's Home

A family, who have chosen to remain anonymous, recently found a set of baseball cards valued around over $1 million in a deceased relative's home.

The cards feature Ty Cobb, also known as "the Georgia Peach," a famous Detroit slugger. The cache has seven baseball cards dated from between 1909 and 1911. In addition, they are from one of the most prized baseball card lots called T206. Experts in Southern California verified the cards' authenticity.

The "T" stands for tobacco since the cards were sold alongside American Tobacco Company products. Before the find, only 15 cards were thought to be in existence. The seven cards are worth seven figures. Hall of fame legend Cobb is depicted on their faces in front of a red background with a white border, and the backside bears the words “king of the smoking tobacco world” in green lettering.

Experts described the finding as "almost impossible" and "one of the greatest discoveries in our hobbies."
