Ohio man picks up Picasso at thrift store

A visit to a thrift store turned out to be well worth it for an Ohio man.

Zach Bodish found a piece of art work which caught his eye. So he bought it for $14. At first he thought it was just a Picasso print. But when he got home he discovered it was signed by the Spanish artist.

"Soon as I was looking at it, I noticed it was a numbered addition, so I didn't think that it was really a Picasso," Bodish said. "That's really unlikely. I'm not going to run into a signed Picasso at a thrift store."

Art experts say it is legitimate.

Only 100 of the prints were made for a ceramics exposition in France back in 1958.

The picture could be worth anywhere from $500 to $10,000.
