If he was correct about this, it would be worth a huge fortune. But there was only one way to find out the truth. So he took a pencil and began to rub it into the wood. Then the letters became more clear.

Sue McEntee had lots of her mind. Her cluttered home was starting to drive her nuts. Her house was filled with piles of old books, toys, and unused tools. Her garage was becoming cramped with junk too. It was time to get rid of all of it and have a garage sale. But little did Sue know, she was about to make a huge mistake—one of the biggest of her life.

Sue set up a table in her driveway and began to organize everything into neat piles. There were so many things just taking up space; an old plastic Jack-O-Lantern, camping gear that hadn't been used in years. Her kids were grown now and they didn't want these things either. It was time to finally let stuff go. Even the old baseball bats that they collected over the years would be up for grabs. She placed them all in a neat row and didn't even think twice about the wooden bat, but she should have.

Bruce Scapecchi woke up feeling it was a great day to go on a treasure hunt. His favorite pastime was checking out the local garage and estate sales, antique shops, and thrift stores. He loved the mystery of not knowing what he might find. Sometimes, he would find a hidden treasure among the trash. It wouldn't happen often but just enough to keep him coming back for more. Bruce had a good feeling about today.

During the middle of summer, Bruce would visit anywhere from 2 to 5,000 garage and estate sales. He's been a collector most of his life, and his keen eyes know just what to look for. But when Bruce came to Sue's garage sale, he scanned thru everything so fast that he almost missed it.
