MENTOR, OH - You know those TV shows where people fight over the contents of abandoned storage lockers without knowing what's in them? A thrift store owner in Ohio took a gamble and bought a locker that he was hoping might have a few valuables.
But he wasn't expecting a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind sports gear. It turns out the locker once belonged to Cleveland Cavs player Samardo Samuels, who played in the NBA from 2010 to 2012. It was full of memorabilia from his days on the court, including 25 pairs of new shoes and Cavaliers playbooks.
Jeff Noble payed $425 for the gear, but he's expected to make a lot more cash when he sells the stuff online and in his store.
It just goes to show that one man's junk is another man's Ebay treasure.
