This weekend, the baseball card collection of a New Jersey resident goes on the auction block, and collectors say it could be worth millions.

Uncle Jimmy Micioni, died in March at the age of 97. His collection contains cards signed by some of baseball's greatest players, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Jimmie Foxx. There are over one thousand cards and collectibles and they are turning heads.

Three other cards in the collection that are making collectors faint? A 1969 Topps Super Rookie Reggie Jackson card, plus a 1949 Bowman #50 Jackie Robinson card as well as a Topps #207 Pete Rose card from 1965.

Experts call it one of the greatest discoveries ever made in the hobby.
