Negatives bought at a Garage Sale for $45 are Worth $200 Million

65 negatives of world famous photographer Ansel Adams were bought at a garage sale in Fresno, California for only $45.

The photos have been verified as Ansel Adam’s early work, thought to have been lost  in a 1937 Yosemite fire, and are now valued at over $200,000,000 [$200 Million]

Ansel Adams is best known for his stunning black and white photography – in particular – his western America landscapes. He passed away in 1984 at the age of 82.

The 6.5 x 8.5 inch glass plate negatives of famous Yosemite landscapes and San Francisco landmarks made an interesting journey from Ansel Adams’ own collection to a Pasadena, Ca. unclaimed storage / warehouse salvage sale and ultimately to a Fresno, Ca. garage sale.

One fortunate man has parlayed a $45 investment into a $200 Million cash cow.

    I once bought a book on ebay for 20 cents and re sold it for $120. Anything is possible

    I consider myself a very successful business man because of this.
