Heritage Auctions are to offer a pre Civil War baseball card as part of their Sports Platinum Night Auction in Chicago on July 30, 2015.

The 1860 Brooklyn Atlantics baseball card is the oldest known team baseball card in existance and has been passed down the same family for over 150 years.

The card is one of only two known examples-the other is housed in the private collection of Corey Shanus, a collector of 19th century baseball memorabilia. 

Online bidding has already opened on the card, which could bring up to $50,000 when the auction closes on July 30th.
