Phantom Cards? Man Charged in Craig’s List Case

Two Mantle rookies and a 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth could be had for a song….

A Moses Lake, Washington man is facing some pretty serious charges in a case involving vintage baseball cards advertised on Craig’s List.

Did he really have a couple of old Mickey Mantles and a Goudey Ruth? If he did, the Virginia woman that sent payment says she never got them. The police believe her and now Raymond Ersie Jensen has been hauled in by the local police department. It’s a coast-to-coast case that makes the world seem much smaller when the internet is involved.

But if you think it’s the first time Jensen has been advertising old baseball cards for sale and had issues with delivery, you’d better read the whole story courtesy of the Columbia Basin Herald.
