COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man has received quite the return on his investment after selling a signed Picasso print for thousands more than the $14 he chalked up to buy it.
Zachary Bodish of Columbus saw the print at his local thrift store in early March and bought it for $14.14. He became curious of its true worth after he closely inspected some faded red writing on the piece.
Art experts say Picasso designed the print for a 1958 ceramics exhibition in France. Bodish's print is marked as number six of a 100-set Picasso signed. But it's possibly one of only a handful the artist personally reviewed.
After a short brush with celebrity, Bodish recently sold the piece for $7,000 to a buyer who wants to remain anonymous.
