Three notebooks filled with lyrics and ideas and a few CDs with unreleased tracks from the legendary late rapper Tupac Shakur were bought from someone originally just responding to a Craigslist ad for baseball cards, according to TMZ. Coincidentally, the seller's dad used to work for Tupac, and had some leftover merchandise to clear out. 

The items are now for sale on autograph-dealing site Moments in Time. The "Point the Finga" music notes are expected to rake in at least $35,000, according to TMZ.

Tupac's relatives, including his mother, want to block the sale.
