He paid $4.99 for the vase and found out it was worth $50,000!  Watch:

Antiques Roadshow was filming in Indianapolis, when they came across a man who had purchased a vase at Goodwill for $4.99.  Apparently, the vase was made by the Overbeck sisters as part of the Arts and Crafts Movement between 1880 and 1920.

The appraiser, of course, was asked how much it was worth:

 “At auction, it would bring somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000,” estimated Rago. “I can’t believe that,” said the very happy vase owner. “I mean, it’s a seriously, seriously good piece of Overbeck,” Rago continued. “It’s got everything it’s got to have, this one’s got it.” “Feel my heart thumping,” the owner responded, smiling.
