A group of estate sale shoppers in Pittsburgh made a truly remarkable find earlier this week when they unearthed a massive haul of vintage baseball cards dating back to 1941. The cache of Cards, which included several rare "Play Ball" panels, is thought to be one of the most significant finds in the world of sports memorabilia in recent years.

The discovery was made when a team of estate sale shoppers were combing through the contents of a Pittsburgh home that was being sold off after the death of its owner. The home belonged to a lifelong collector who had amassed a large collection of sports and non-sports cards over the course of his lifetime. Among the items in the collection were several rare "Play Ball" panels from 1941, which are considered some of the most valuable cards in the world.

The estate sale shoppers contacted a local sports memorabilia dealer to appraise the find, and he estimated that the cards could be worth upwards of $1 million. The cards will now be auctioned off to the highest bidder, and it is expected that they will fetch a record price for a vintage baseball card collection.

This week's find of a lifetime goes to a group of estate sale shoppers in Pittsburgh who stumbled upon a massive haul of uncut 1941 Play Ball panels. These rare and highly valuable cards are expected to fetch a record price at auction, solidifying their status as one of the most significant finds in sports memorabilia history.
