1. The Fated Estate Sale
Texas-born Emil Knodell is not only a 67-year-old retired marketing director and US veteran, he's also a treasure hunter. He enjoys spending his free time scouring sales and flea sales, hoping to stumble on incredibly valuable items that others have thrown out. And as luck would have it, the old adage "A man is the treasure of another man" would soon be the case for him.
It was during one of his quests that sold yard sales and landed in the city of Missouri City, Texas. At first, it seemed like a fairly ordinary estate sale, but he did not know he would find something incredible there. Something that would probably change his life forever, turning his story into a national sensation.
