A woman named Gale brought her collection of old baseball cards to PBS' "Antiques Roadshow" and walked away feeling like a million bucks – because that's how much they turned out to be worth.
It is "the biggest sports memorabilia valuation" in the show's history.
"For me, it's as good as it gets," said
The cards were from the 1871-72 Boston Red Stockings team which included players like George Wright, Harry Wright and Albert Spalding.
Her great, great grandmother ran a boarding house in Boston where the players stayed, and they also wrote handwritten notes to her which are included in the woman's collection.
"I really couldn't believe that it could be worth that much," Gale said afterwards in shock.
She also says she would like to keep them in family rather than sell them.
