    Valuable Card Collection Found in Home
    By Associated Press

    BOSTON - Police were called to guard the condemned home of a reclusive man whose death led to the discovery of a valuable collection of vintage sports cards.

    The collection, stored in 400 to 500 boxes in John F. Hessian's home in Boston's Roslindale section, included cards of such long-ago baseball stars as Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente.

    Hessian also had football and hockey cards dating to the 1940s in a collection police estimate could be worth up to $1 million, according to a report published Thursday in the Boston Herald.

    "This is like Fort Knox inside," said Michael Wiseman of Aftermath Cleaning Co., which was hired to tear through piles of trash 6-feet high to reach the cards.

    Hessian, 83, lived alone in the home his entire life, until a neighbor discovered him dead there on Jan. 2.

    Four truckloads of the cards were removed from the house last week. Hessian also had some valuable cards stored in a safe deposit box in an unknown location.

    Hessian is survived by two cousins who are left to hunt for a will or determine who inherits the card collection.


    Wow! This would be the ultimate box break of my life. Why can`t I have reclusive family members who have this kind of stuff? hehe, I guess I`ll have to be that family member! :icon_wink
