John and Karen begin the segment talking about an unemployed man from Columbus, Ohio. He was walking through a thrift store and stumbled upon a Picasso poster.
He purchased the painting for $14. As it turns out, the poster was actually signed by Picasso himself!
The unemployed man then sold the poster for $7,000, turning a $6,986 profit — not bad!
As a side note, the 2012 Antiques Roadshow tour makes its way into Boston on June 9th! (Click here for details)
