The sale Thursday night, held during the National Sports Collectors Convention in Baltimore, featured cards depicting Hall of Famers Honus Wagner and Ty Cobb.

The 37 baseball cards exceeded the $500,000 they were expected to fetch. The prices included buyer’s premiums.

Family members cleaning out their grandfather’s attic earlier this year in Defiance, Ohio, came across what experts say is one of the most exciting finds in the history of sports card collecting.

The cards are from a rare series issued around 1910 that was given out with candy.

The family that discovered the stockpile is evenly dividing the cards and money among 20 cousins.
