NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Many people dream of being the lucky so-and-so who went to a thrift store and bought a $2 item that turned out to be worth six figures. Meet Michael Sparks, a Nashville music equipment technician for Soundcheck Nashville, who happens to be that so-and-so.
A rolled-up document he happened upon last March and paid less than $3 for turns out to be a rare copy of the Declaration of Independence. It might fetch a quarter-million at auction - or more.

I wonder if the individual who purchased the item knew before hand what it was worth. That is one helluva bargain man.
