Glass negatives that a California man purchased at a garage sale for $45 may actually be worth millions.

Richard Norsigian bought the 60 glass negatives nearly ten years ago from a guy in Fresno. He says he talked the man down from $60.

The negatives all date back to the 1920s and 1930s and were each kept inside manila envelopes that were deteriorating in age.

Norsigian had the negatives scanned and developed into prints, which friends and family said resembled the work of famed photographer Ansel Adams.

Adams, known for his black and white photos of Yosemite National Park, also used the glass negative format.
