LOS ANGELES (AP) – what could be better than becoming a millionaire after finding seven vintage baseball cards while cleaning out your late great-grandfather’s house?

The family that two years ago made one of the greatest finds in sports collectibles history when they found seven ty cobb baseball cards printed between 1909 and 1911 have now found one more in the matching set.

"It falls under the category of ‘you can’t make this stuff up,’" said joe orlando, president of professional sports authenticator of newport beach, california. The company verified the new card and valued it at $250,000.Behan said

"The initial discovery, it was a real shock to them," orlando said. "They put the cleaning on hold for a while … Later they knew what they were looking for, and in a dusty box between two books, there was another one."

"He wasn’t even a collector," orlando said. "He just held on to these cards that were most likely given to him after buying a particular tobacco product." (baseball cards were associated with tobacco, not bubble gum, in their earliest days.)

There are now 24 known copies of the card featuring the famed detroit tigers slugger that on the back reads, "ty cobb – king of the smoking tobacco world."

That’s less than half the known remaining number of honus wagner cards from the same time that have long been considered the holy grail of collecting.

And while the surge in numbers for the cobb cards may have diminished the value somewhat by making them less rare, orlando said the excitement surrounding them, and the possibility that more could exist, have made up the difference.Social media

When louis has his hands full of tomatoes or other snacks, he walks upright like a human to keep food and hands clean, rather than the typical gorilla stance of leaning forward on his knuckles.

Michael stern, curator of primates and small mammals, says workers had to install a fire hose over a mud puddle in the yard. The nearly 500-pound, 6-foot-tall primate crosses it like a tight rope to avoid getting dirty.

Stern says it’s "pretty unusual" for gorillas to walk around upright. In the wild, western lowland gorillas like louis might do it for a few seconds to reach food or wade into swamps.City officials
