Be careful when you clean up the attic or basement. There may be some hidden treasure potentially worth millions of dollars.

Members of a family were cleaning out the attic of their grandfather in Ohio and have stumbled upon a finding that could be worth millions of dollars.

They found century-old baseball cards of Hall of Fame members, including Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and Cy Young.
And the cards are in excellent condition.

Experts say it is one of the biggest, most exciting findings in the history of sports card collecting.
Two cousins came to find cards from 1910 in a box covered with soot in February in the city of Defiance, Ohio. They say that the cards belonged to their grandfather, who died in the 1940's.

The best of the bunch 37 of the 700 cards they found are expected to raise a total of $500,000.
