Default Stolen T 206s

My First post here. On a recent trip up the Cali coast where I ended in San Fran I had my car broken into on the way to the airport. Smashed glass of my rental and took some bags in middle of day at a boardwalk on beach. My carry on bag was stolen and in it were two T 206 cards I had just bought in LA a few days earlier. One was a Walter Johnson and the other a Cy Young. If you see these cards appear anywhere please let me know. They are in PSA Slabs. Pics attached.

Thanks!

Jason Stein

Local pawn/card shops or eBay. I bet these turn up pretty quickly in one of those places since the chacnes are the guy has no clue what they are or worth.

I'd hate to ask the obvious, but you did file a police report correct? And give them the details of these cards? Only ask so that they can definitively catch the guy when they do reappear.

Have you added the Cert numbers to your PSA set registry? If the thief tries to sell them in the holders, and the new owner tries to add them, it will notify them they're owned by someone else. If he tries to force it, you will be notified that someone is trying to add them to their registry or inventory.
Inform PSA that the cards are stolen as well, and send them a copy of the police report, so that if someone tries to register them, they can follow up with the local police.

Can you also show the backs? Maybe there is a distinguishing feature that can be used to identify the cards in case they're cracked out.

Yes def did police report etc. Luckily I am insured but I don't like the idea of someone running around with my cards! Wish I had known that 30,000 cars a year get broken into in San Fran.

I just got back from Frisco. Been there since Sunday. Was told immediately to empty the car, that property thefts were on the rise big time. I went to Lefty's in Burlingame, but didn't see your cards there.
