Some people seriously have all the luck and I’ll admit it, I’m super jealous. The jerks that find a pre-revolution document in a yard sale desk or the person who finds a lottery ticket worth thousands, they’re frustrating as hell. However, this unnamed family may top them all.

You may recall, two years ago an anonymous family discovered seven Ty Cobb cards in a paper bag at the house of a deceased great-grandfather. The seven Cobb cards were valued at $1 million and considered one of the greatest finds in the history of sports memorabilia.

“This is one of the greatest discoveries in the history of our hobby.”
– Joe Orlando, President of Professional Sports Authenticator when the unnamed family found the original seven Ty Cobb baseball cards in 2016

Well, the rich get richer in this case. The family was recently searching through the great-grandfather’s stuff and in a dusty old box between two books, lay an 8th rare Ty Cobb baseball card valued at $250,000.
