Whiting had been out of work since 2003 due to back issues, so in his spare time, he would search for odd photos in hopes that he’d find treasure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few bucks like other people would buy a lottery ticket,” said Whiting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To make sure the picture was legitimate, he hit up an expert on 19th-century photography. Whiting learned that not only was the picture authentic but that it could be worth at least $2 million. The photo dates back to 1861-2 when the bank robber was 14. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whiting has already reached out to an auction house to cash out. “I’m definitely selling it. I’ll be able to buy my own house and my own car. I can’t wait.
