A trip to the thrift store was well worth it for one Ohio man. It appears he found a valuable piece of art.

When Zach Bodish first saw a Picasso painting, he thought it was just a copy. When he got home he discovered much more: a faint signature by the Spanish artist.

Only 100 of the prints were made for a ceramics exposition in France on Easter of 1958. All of them were signed, but are very rare.

Art dealers estimate that they could be worth anywhere from $500 to $10,000. Just about everyone says it is well worth more than the $14 Bodish paid for it at the thrift store.
