We reported Friday that Cleveland Police had a cache of vintage baseball cards in their latest auction of seized and forfeited items.
It turns out those cards didn’t belong to a drug dealer or some other criminal doing time in the state pen.
The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported that the cards were stolen by a California doctor during a 2004 show at the IX Center. While the story doesn’t mention which show, it’s not a stretch to make the connection with the National Sports Collectors Convention since it’s believed that was the only card show held in that location that year.
Wouldn’t it have been just as easy to do a few more unnecessary tests on a patient?
Finding a cure is close to the hearts of authors Ron and Ellen Zappala. Two children in their family have Type 1 Diabetes. Because of this, the Zappalas will be donating $10.00 from each purchase of their award-winning first edition baseball book, The T206 Collection: The Players & Their Stories to JDRF.
Each first edition book will be signed by the authors.
T206 Players is a beautiful hardcover coffee table book with colorful images and captivating stories of the men responsible for our National Pastime through their images in the T206 set. It’s a great book…and a great cause.
