Yard Sale Finds Can Equal Big Money
After reading about the treasures that people have found at yard sales and the value of those items, you bet I'm shopping at The Worlds's Largest Yard Sale.
A guy in Ohio was cleaning out his grandfather's house and found a stash of baseball cards in pristine condition. The collection included Honus Wagner and Ty Cobb cards. The total value of the cards was 3 million dollars.
Jane Cordery is a schoolteacher in England who was cleaning out her attic and found a picture that had been given to her as a gift. She did some research and found out the painting was worth over $900,000.
Stephon Tull was cleaning out his dad's attic and found a tape reel labeled "Dr. King interview, Dec. 21 1960". Think that might fetch some cash? It did. He sold to a private collector for an undisclosed sum.
You see my point. With over 100 vendors at the Rochester Fair Grounds on Saturday, that next Picasso painting or Babe Ruth baseball card could be in the mix. You owe it to yourself to go.
