"The Garbage to Gazillionaire Jackpot"

March 3, 2016
Here's a life lesson. When you're cleaning out grandma's attic, look through everything before throwing anything away.

Case in point. A family found a brown paper bag in an attic, and when they opened it up, they found seven Ty Cobb baseball cards.

Ty played in the early 1900s, and it was thought that only 15 of his official cards existed on the planet.

So here's seven more.

Not worth a gazillion - thanks, Good Morning America, for the hype - but probably worth about a million dollars.

Not bad for an afternoon of attic-cleaning, huh?

WATCH: Family finds 7 rare Ty Cobb baseball cards worth over an estimated $1 million! (Previously thought only 15 existed in the world)
