Default New Cable Show Will Feature Rare Card Find

New Cable Show Will Feature Rare Card Find

Friday, 18 December 2009
Accidental Fortune will show us those who've done what the rest of us dream of--find rare and valuable items there for the taking.
A new network television show will debut next week, highlighting those great finds we all dream of. "Accidental Fortune" premiers on The Learning Channel (TLC) next Wednesday.

The show will tell the stories of average citizens who find extraordinary and valuable items in ordinary places. The show premiers at 10 PM Eastern time, but will run again in the days that follow.

One segment on that first show will spotlight an 1869 Peck & Snyder Cincinnati Red Stockings card that was taken from storage inside a Fresno, CA antique and collectibles store last year. The card was placed on eBay by the shopís owner, Bernice Gallego who was unaware of the cardís scarcity and potential value as one of the first baseball cards ever issued. She said she'd have been happy if someone had paid her the $9.99 minimum bid, but Gallego quickly discovered it was worth much more when emails from excited collectors ready to make offers began reaching her mailbox.
