PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — An auction house expects six-figure bids when it sells a rare 148-year-old baseball card discovered at a yard sale in rural Maine.

Saco River Auction Co. in Biddeford says a man found the card by chance in a photo album he bought in Baileyville, on the Canadian border.

It’s not the same as a modern baseball card. Instead, it’s a photograph of the Brooklyn Atlantics amateur baseball club mounted on a card. Saco River manager Troy Thibodeau says he’s aware of only two such cards in existence, the other at the Library of Congress.
