A mid-Michigan man is now finding himself several thousand dollars richer after cleaning out an old farmhouse. It's there he found a rare, vintage football card dating back to 1894. Can you believe he almost threw it out?! Check out the video after the jump.

Fox 17 News reports that an unidentified mid-Michigan came across an old notebook of vintage boxing and football cards.  He considered tossing it, but then decided to do some research. Good thing!

One of the cards features Harvard's John Dunlop,  issued by the Mayo Tobacco Works of Richmond Virginia in 1894. The collectible is part of the first known set of football cards. It's estimated worth is $10,000.

The card now rests at Legends Sports and Games, inside the Woodland Mall in Kentwood.
