 In the hit 1985 movie “The Goonies“, Sean Astin‘s character finds a treasure map in the attic. Last February in Defiance, Ohio, Karl Kissner didn’t find a treasure map, he found a century old baseball treasure…700 mint condition baseball cards featuring the likes of Hall of Famers Ty Cobb, Cy Young, and Honus Wagner.

The treasure recently sold online for $566,132. Maybe we should all go look in an older relatives attic today. Who knows what you might find?

No one individual will take home a giant payday. According to the Associated Press, the money will be divided evenly among 20 cousins. Hey, I wouldn’t mind my cousin sending me a $28,306 check after finding buried treasure in my late Grandfather’s attic.
