A woman named Gale brought her collection of old baseball cards to PBS' "Antiques Roadshow" and walked away feeling like a million bucks – because that's how much they turned out to be worth.

It is "the biggest sports memorabilia valuation" in the show's history.

"For me, it's as good as it gets," said
The cards were from the 1871-72 Boston Red Stockings team which included players like George Wright, Harry Wright and Albert Spalding.

Her great, great grandmother ran a boarding house in Boston where the players stayed, and they also wrote handwritten notes to her which are included in the woman's collection.

"I really couldn't believe that it could be worth that much,"
Gale said afterwards in shock.

She also says she would like to keep them in family rather than sell them.

A fitting end to the illustrious career of a baseball icon. Even as a die-hard Red Sox fan, you may hate Jeter's guts. But dammit, you've still got to respect him.

A fan caught on camera sleeping during a New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game in April has filed a defamation lawsuit against Major League Baseball, the Yankees, ESPN and the game's two announcers (John Kruk and Dan Shulman),according to The Courthouse News Service.

Andrew Robert Rector, in a lawsuit filed in Bronx Supreme Court, lays out why he felt he was defamed after images of him nodding off at Yankee Stadium on April 13 were broadcast.

"In the course of watching the game plaintiff napped and this opened unending verbal crusade against the napping plaintiff," the complaint stated.
