Thumbs up Thanks to Alex aka triplehattrick2! He caught a thief at the Tri-Star Show today!!

Had to write a post about what happened at the Tri-Star show today because it is unreal and I owe Alex aka triplehattrick2 on BO big time for catching a thief who stole a card from me during the show!

Long story short: I carried several cards with me today at the Tri-Star Show in Houston, apparently at some point my 2009 Bowman Sterling Black Refractor Arian Foster Auto serial numbered 23/25 was stolen from me while I showed the cards to dealers for potential trades/sales!!

I told several of the dealers at the show about the theft and double checked where I had been to see if maybe I left it on a table somewhere, but eventually gave up and left the show assuming it was lost forever.

After I left, the thief, (I'm guessing he was waiting for me to leave) started going around to dealers at the show and tried selling the card. Luckily Alex knew that my card had been stolen and the thief tried to sell the card to him. Alex confiscated the card from the thief and told him it had been reported stolen and a police report had been filed. The thief panicked and ran out of the show. Alex got my information from Beckett and I drove back up to Reliant Arena to pick up the card. I was completely shocked that the card had been found!

I tried to give Alex a cash reward for taking my card back from the thief but he refused the reward and just said to pay it forward.

Its great to know there are honest and trustworthy people in the Hobby and I wanted to pass this story along for others who might be put in the same situation.

Also, for future trades, I will trade in triplehattrick2's favor!

One more thing: A funny part of the story is the thief got the card RCR graded at Beckett, got a 9/9 (see scans). Not sure if I will submit for the slab or not. LOL

Props to Alex for sure. I can't believe people sometimes, I mean it's not surprising these days but still disgust me how some people are.

Glad you got your card back Kyle.

A newer member here,panamamyers made this statement awhile back. It has stuck with me for some reason.

Painful to think about just how many people out there do not have a problem taking something that is not theirs in today's society.

I think its a 9. It made me laugh when they gave the card back to me because I had it RCR graded on Friday and wasn't happy with the 9/9 grade I got then, so I cut it out of the BGS soft sleeve and put it back in a regular top loader.

Then got it back after it was stolen, and it was back in it again, with the same grades!

Disgusts me when I read about things like this. Luckily you were able to get the card back. In both 2011 and 2012 on the forums and in the blog rooms I have heard about members having entire collections stolen from them at the National Sportscard Convention. As others have said it amazes me how many people think they can take things from others, and alot of these people you dont picture as criminals. Saw on the news recently where a mother walked into a store with her two kids and found a wallet. Took out the money and split it up amongst her kids. Just disgusting

Yea, Coby will do well with that Kaepernick Superfractor! I think Coby has the Watt Magic now too! I'll be at the next Tri-Star show, if you see me let me know, maybe we can make a trade.

Thanks again, after I thought about it I remember which dude it was. He was next to me while I was showing my cards to a dealer at the show. You're right he was a total douche! I'll be looking for him at the next show.

I'll buy you guys a few beers at the May show!

Probably, I'll keep an eye out for that guy at the next show in May. For anyone else out there who brings cards or is a dealer, be careful!
