A Tennessee doctor indicted for trafficking in prescription drug trafficking has asked a court to turn over the vintage baseball card collection it seized.
Federal agents are looking to liquidate assets the government says Dr. Rosaire Dubrule obtained by selling drugs illegally.
The Drug Enforcement Agency listed a large group of vintage baseball cards including T206s, Goudeys, a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle and many others–along with some rare coins.
Now, the 60 year-old Tennessee resident has asked a federal court to reconsider. He also says he’s having trouble finding lawyers who will represent him.
The DEA published a list of seized assets in July including hundreds of vintage baseball cards and memorabilia items.
"As a baseball junkie, I can tell you he’s got some unbelievable cards," a DEA Spokesman told the Memphis Commercial-Appeal, which has an update on the story.
DuBrule was also charged with criminal trespassing in August. after a June 5 incident at a Tennessee FedEx office where a business manager told police Dubrule entered an area off limits to the public. The manager told she asked Dubrule several times to leave after reporting that he came to office once a week to await a package from a pharmaceutical company in Illinois.
