'Antiques Roadshow': Man Had Piece Of American Art History In Living Room

'Antiques Roadshow' was back in Boise, Idaho. One hopeful man brought in a family heirloom he knew very little about: an etching he had inherited from his grandfather.

It turned out the etching was by one of the most famous American painter and printmakers, Edward Hopper. His works are coveted across the globe, so it's no surprise that the signed print, known as 'The Catboat,' was worth a whopping $250,000.

The appraiser said this print is very rare, as only about 25 exist.

The man's reaction? 'That's more money than belongs in my living room, I think!'
