Looking for some abandoned treasure?

Once every decade, the Minnesota Department of Commerce auctions off items found in thousands of unclaimed bank safety deposit boxes.

The auction happens next Thursday, July 25 and Friday, July 26, at Sheraton Minneapolis West Hotel in Minnetonka, but we got a sneak preview.

Items up for bid include a Babe Ruth signed baseball, a gold Rolex watch, a $1,000 bill, a Tiffany cigarette lighter, fine jewelry and presidential pins.
