You know what they say: One man's junk is another man's treasure. It was true for a Columbus man who may have really scored big with a thrift store find.

Zach Bodish was at the Clintonville Volunteers of America and saw what he thought was a reproduction poster for a 1958 Picasso exhibit.

But, when he pulled out a magnifying glass, he saw the poster was a print that was signed and numbered. 

Only about 100 of these prints were made for a ceramics exposition that was held on Easter in France in 1958.

Bodish only paid $14.14 for the piece. He now believes it is worth much, much more.
