Zach Bodish, a resident of Columbus, Ohio, paid $14.14 in a thrift store last week for what he thought was a regular framed poster advertising Picasso’s work.But as it turns out, the poster might be an original linocut print that Picasso made himself for a 1958 exhibition in southern France, reports Collin Binkley in the Columbus Dispatch.

Bodish found a red mark in the corner of the poster, a sign of originality, along with “6/100” and “original print, signed proof,” written in French on the piece.

If the print is real, Binkley writes, it could make Bodish $6,000 at auction, or double that in a gallery.
