Great finds can turn up anywhere and everywhere.
In the floor of a kitchen. On a long-forgotten shelf. In a box in the basement.
Now you can add another crazy find to the list.
When the dust-covered box was lowered from the rafters, out popped some pieces of baseball history. Included in the mini-time capsule from 1962 was a Jacksonville Suns AAA autographed baseball featuring several future members of the Cleveland Indians, a trophy honoring the Suns' attendance and...a pair of authentic A.L. and N.L. baseballs autographed by members of the 1957 World Series foes--the Yankees and Braves.
Untouched for nearly 50 years, they were accompanied by a photo of the original owner, whose son had brought the items to school in 1962.
There's a theory in how they got there, too. The amazing story, photos and video come from this story in the Jacksonville Sun.
