Police Beat: Dumb Crooks in New York; Bag o’ Cards in Indiana

It’s Sports Collectors Daily’s version of ‘Cops’. Every once in awhile we find some stories we can’t resist involving cards & law enforcement.

Memo to crooks: If you’re stealing a safe full of baseball cards and other collectibles, make sure you can carry it.

Some knuckleheads in Brooklyn couldn’t and the ex-con they tried to steal it from got shot in the process. We only wish we knew if the cards inside were worth the home invasion robbery conviction we’re pretty sure is coming.

…Meanwhile, a collision on an Indiana roadway sends a garbage bag full of cards into the street where an enterprising youth attempts to ‘collect’ them.

A ‘garbage bag’??? They do sell monster boxes and plastic sleeves in Indiana, don’t they?
