Bidding started online today for a rare baseball card, more than a century old. It's a team card of the Red Stocking Baseball Club of Cincinnati from 1869. Bernice Gallego of Fresno found the card while going through some other collectibles at her shop in the Tower District.

She listed the card at just ten dollars, but experts said it could be worth up to $100,000!

In the first few hours, the bids rose by the thousands.

The auction runs for another three weeks.
