It normally is, the show was very busy and we were slammed. The case was opened for another card. Good thing it was only that one. There we ALOT of highend cards in the case. This is the only card we have found as missing.

We have narrowed it down to about a 45 minute window it could have happened. Cops have a report and we are working on getting the tapes from the convention center

Also this is not my card, just the guy I set up with, but if anyone hears or see anything about the sale of a 1.5 my guess is that its that card.

Yeah me too, the dealer is one of the best in the business, never cheated a sole and is always more than fair when buying, whoever took it is good. They did this with four of us working. Im guessing it was a team of them distracting and planning it, the targeted that specific card. They past up 4 goudey babe ruths, namath rookie, and a slue of other $1000+ cards.

I hope you guys get it back. When I was walking around I was noticing a few booths that guys were pulling high dollar cards out and setting th down and leaving them out in the open for anyone to snag when people look away. I would be watching like a hawk with product like that.

Im sure his insurance covers the value but I want the person who took it behind bars so nobody else has to deal this scum like this. There were actually 2 mantle rookies but the one they stole was just easier to get to. Word of advice to anyone, you can never have too many eyes on your stuff. I hope we find it, or atleast who took it so they can be stopped. Thanks to all who are keeping their eyes peeled.

I'm sure he has some pictures of the card, keep an eye on eBay for raw mantles and compare them.
