You can insure a package but that doesn’t always mean it’s going to get where it’s going.
Tom Goss, a former drug store employee from Roanoke, VA, knows that all too well.
They never made it to Dallas.
The U.S. Postal Service began investigating Goss’ claim after he learned they were never delivered. After a couple of months, they gave up, declaring the package “lost”.
Cynics might say there was a postal employee in Dallas who decided a package sent to Beckett might have something good inside, but we’ll probably never know.
While Goss’ estimate that all three would have been ’10’s might be wishful thinking, high grade rookie cards of Wilt Chamberlain, Joe Namath and Larry Bird/Magic Johnson were definitely tough to lose.
Either way, it’s a bummer and Dan Casey of the Roanoke Times spoke with Goss, Beckett and postal officials about the case.
