This photo released by the Saco River Auction Co., in Biddeford, Maine, shows the rare 1865 baseball card of the Brooklyn Atlantics.

Sale of the century

Now this is the best argument I can think of to hit up a few yard sales this year.

Imagine, coming across a 148-year-old baseball card at a yard sale. Pretty amazing stuff.

And, oh, in case you were wondering ...

The card did not contain this notation on the back: "Some of the Brooklyn Atlantics' statistics were accrued during what has come to be known as the Steroids Era."
