Sports Card Dealer’s Attacker Gets Jail

PSA Collectors Club

Remember kids…it’s always better to trade for the cards you need.


The Pennsylvania man who pleaded guilty to attacking a local dealer with a crowbar and stealing a bevy of vintage baseball cards will spend time in jail.

A judge in Lycoming County, PA handed a sentence of 18 months to three years in prison to 28 year-old David Baney Jr. last week. Baney attacked Ronald Aderhold, the owner of Montour Baseball Cards on Broad Street in Montoursville in March of this year, stealing over $47,000 worth of Hall of Famers and modern star cards.

Baney pleaded guilty after being arrested last May and was jailed for violating parole. Baney had walked away from a half-way house in Wernersville in 2007. He had received a state prison sentence of 4 to 8 years after pleading guilty to robbery and conspiracy charges in 2002.

Not all of the stolen cards in the Montoursville attack have been recovered.
