“FERNDALE, Mich. – A search for a water leak resulted in a rare find for a Michigan couple. Hidden in the basement ceiling of their home, Barbara and Harley Earl found tobacco cards from 1910-11 that could fetch thousands at an auction this weekend.
…When the Earls opened the box, they found more than 300 Sweet Caporal cigarette cards. About 200 of the cards featured baseball players from 1910, including multiple copies of Tigers outfielder Ty Cobb and Giants pitcher Christy Mathewson.”
