Ohio man finds million dollar baseball card collection in attic

CREATED Jul 10, 2012

It seems like many American families share a similar story when it comes to old baseball card collections. The story is usually a sad one where a valuable collection of cards from the 1950's (or earlier) sat in an attic for years and were eventually thrown away by a mother who was sick of all the boxes taking up space.

Baseball card collecting and trading takes me back to my youth. I recall opening up a set of Topps baseball cards one day only to find a Dwight Gooden rookie card. I protected that thing with my life and never considered trading it. As a matter of fact, I still have it in a protective case along with a Kirby Puckett rookie, BJ Surhoff rookie and Ken Griffey Jr. rookie.

In the search through my limited stack of cards, I failed to come across anything that spiked my interest meter. But Ohio native Karl Kissner most certainly did. What he found in his attic is the "Mona Lisa" of card collections that figures to be worth millions.
