Karl Kissner was cleaning out his late grandfather’s house when his sister discovered the box, and set it aside. When Karl saw what was inside, he took the collection to a baseball card expert, who was blown away. Some are calling it the most spectacular baseball card find ever.
The cards, all from around the 1909 era, include names such as Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Honus Wagner, among others. More importantly, they were nearly all in pristine condition.
“It’s like finding the Mona Lisa in the attic” Kissner said.
