LOS ANGELES (AP) — From a crumpled paper bag in a dilapidated house came 
a baseball card find of a lifetime. Seven of them, actually.

Card experts in Southern California said Wednesday that they have verified the 
legitimacy and seven-figure total value of seven identical Ty Cobb cards from
the printing period of 1909 to 1911. Before the recent find. there were only
about 15 known to still exist.

Joe Orlando, the president of Professional Sports Authenticator in Newport 
Beach, California, who verified the find, said it is "spectacular" and “miraculous”
to have come across such a cache.

Orlando said in a statement…."I am not sure if any other baseball card find is
more remarkable than this new discovery.”

outfielder. He was born in rural Narrows, Georgia. Cobb spent 22 seasons
