The FBI has taken an interest in the sports memorabilia business, but their latest involvement has nothing to do with auction bidding, doctored cards or other such shenanigans. The Chicago Tribune reports that agents–on their own time–are trying to determine the whereabouts of the Stanley Cup-winning puck.
It hasn’t been seen since Patrick Kane fired it into the net to give the Chicago Blackhawks a six-game victory over the Philadelphia Flyers last spring.
The puck might be worth $50,000 or more, but a mountain of sports cards stolen in a recent burglary were worth more, according to Cleveland cops.
Some quick leg work by officers led to their recovery.
Now, they’re working on bringing in the suspects who tried to sell them at a local shop, according to this story in the Cleveland Banner.
While the only cards visible in the picture appear to be 1990s material, who knows what was inside those monster boxes?
A 1977 Reggie Jackson game-worn Yankees jersey was the top-selling item in MEARS January event that closed early Sunday morning. The pinstriped button-down went for $37,740 including the buyer’s premium.
A 1985 Cal Ripken game-worn Orioles home jersey sold for $5962.
