Number 52 was an item on The List.
Dig up and return the buried treasure
Earl, Randy, and Joy decided to steal from the local library. Joy finds a set of old silverware that they originally start to eat with until they see on television that the silverware is worth 2,000 dollars due to it's history. They try to sell it to Jasper but it was too "hot" because of the television coverage.
They bury the silverware but various events such as melting them down, making a ransom note, and selling them to another buyer due to everyone wanting the 2,000 dollars creates a type of shell game. Ultimately, Darnell gave the silverware back to the library. Earl realizes this when he comes back to the library to make a donation so he can cross it off his list.
