Treasures Hunted: Uncovering Family Photographs

By: Kip Jensen and Jennifer Lowe, eBay News Team

As a collector of memorabilia, Jeff Sievert has encountered all sorts of vintage items. But Jeff was in for a surprise when he found a true one-of-a-kind on eBay: A 1940 high school photo of his father, who had passed away decades ago.

“I lost my father at an early age,” said Jeff, recalling his memories of his father. “So these kinds of things mean a great deal. It was a high school picture that nobody else would have.”

The eBay seller who sold the photo to Jeff later sent Jeff a scrapbook that had originally contained the photo of Jeff's father, along with several other newspaper clippings.
