About the find

During ROADSHOW’s 2014 event in New York City, Sports Memorabilia appraiser Leila Dunbar met Gail, the owner of the earliest known baseball-fan collection in history. It consisted of an astounding archive of Boston Red Stockings baseball cards, originally given to Gail’s great-grandfather, who lived with the team for a short time. Re-watch the iconic one-million-dollar appraisal and see new footage of Dunbar expanding on why Gail’s archive was the greatest she has ever seen on ROADSHOW.
