Bullpen Burbank, opened in the fall of 2021 by the owner of popular Southern California hobby shop Bullpen LA, was burglarized last week.
According to the shop, a white van broke through a security door and iron gate in the back of the facility to gain entrance.
Four suspects were seen on security cameras, all with faces covered.
An alarm sounded but the four managed to grab dozens of boxes and single cards before escaping a few minutes later, just ahead of Burbank Police. Several cases of high-end products were stolen.
Owner Mitch Guttenberg purchased The Sports Source, a long-time hobby shop, and turned it into Bullpen Burbank nearly two years ago.
The burglary took place just 16 months after Bullpen’s original store near Los Angeles International Airport was burglarized by suspects who terrorized a store employee and made off with upwards of $1 million worth of rare sports card boxes and cases.
A list of stolen merchandise is below.
