Default Stolen Cards - Whole Collection Gone

I'm not sure if this is the right area to be posting this thread, but it needs to be mentioned for the card community and more importantly the Greater Vancouver Area.

My house was broken into July 30th at about 1:30 pm - EVERY SINGLE CARD IN MY PHOTOBUCKET HAS BEEN STOLEN BY THE THIEFS. Now the majority of them are numbered so recognizing them would be very easy if people were looking for them. If you go to card shows, flea markets or anywhere that people may be offering these cards please contact the police and/or myself. I have a police file # and want these schmucks hanged! Cards arent the only thing they took, many items of jewelry, electronics, cameras etc....

So please review my bucket and keep your eyes peeled! This is the end of the hobby for me, as I have no cards left.

Thanks

The more people that know this info the better and someone might be able to help. I'm sure Becketts would not mind putting you in the front of their magazine somewhere especially if you had a sport specific collection. Sorry and good luck recovering anything.

That sucks ! Will your homeowners ins. cover something like that ? Probably something alot of us should look into in the event of a robbery or even worse fire/flood.

I have Allstate for everything so if its not covered, I wonder how much more it would cost or if they even would insure something with such a volatile market. Where is Terry when you need him ?

Good luck man. Did you notify all the local card shops ? Best case scenario would be the idiots try to flip it fast in a local shop that you've already alerted.

I am really sorry to hear about your collection being stolen. I hope they can catch these guys at some point. There are some insurance companies that specialize in sports cards and memoribilia. I am pretty sure putting the full value coverage onto your homeowners will significantly raise your premiums. Something to look into though. Glad I have dogs!

I have dealt with a couple different homeowners insurance companies. When it comes to collectibles, you can raise the coverage for them, but the way I have seen claims handled when it was collectibles, cd's, records, etc. Unless the items were documented by a professional and paperwork to state exactly what the item was and how much it was worth, they have all been treated as a common item and replacement cost was figured out as number of items x average cost for a like kind item. For instance, say you had 500 records damaged in a fire, they would say you had 500 and say that they can go buy an average record from that time for $15.00 from "whatever" place, they would pay based on 500 records x $15.00 ea and that would be all it figured out to. No matter if one happened to be worth $1000.00. They would not pay more unless it was documented by a professional. Alot of companies may be different, but that is just what I have been told by the few I have dealt with.

Best of luck with catching whoever is responsible for this.

Once you post your information everywhere, your cards are bound to turn up. Seems things always wind up on eBay, and I bet that collection has been shopped already a handful of times. I wish you the best of luck in finding it and those who ripped it off. Within the next few weeks there is a good chance it may show up on the bay, just keep watching.

Yes, I wil be checking Ebay regularly as well as Craigslist - I have a few 1/1's so they are very easy to notice, but many other cards are numbered very low. Actually, most of the cards I had were #'d......hopefully they screw up. If I see an item on Ebay, how should I proceed?

There is a link on every item listing that says "Report This Item" or some such. It may be toward the bottom of the page. You get a laundry list of reasons to choose from why you are reporting it. But BEFORE you do this, show the item listing to local law enforcement. If eBay pulls the item, then you have no way to show it to them. Auctions ended early show up in Completed listings, but those that were pulled by eBay do not.

The best way to proceed, especially if you have a police report and are working actively with the police, would be to notify them one of the cards you reported has shown up on eBay. They have direct contact information for eBay, and will be able to get ahold of someone there directly and have the listing pulled, as well as the sellers information handed over since they are indeed law enforcement. You can try emailing eBay, but response time is slow, and how do they know what you are saying is true? When local or better yet state police become involved, they will immediately take action.
