This comes from the Livingston Daily...
"A Hamburg Township man is offering a $500 reward for the return of a vintage 1951 Parkhurst hockey card collection that was stolen from his vehicle while it was parked in his driveway.
The victim, who lives in the 9600 block of Mohican Court, said the collector cards, "worth a considerable amount of money," were stolen from his Chrysler Sebring convertible between 7 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. Saturday.
Interesting idea, keeping a cherished collection in what appears to be a treasure chest. But why, oh why, was this in a car? If you had a 1951 Parkie collection, would you have it in a car? I would keep those in a safe or at the very least, locked up in a closet somewhere. If I went anywhere with them, I'd have one of those movie style metal briefcases with the chained handcuffs and all (maybe a slight exaggeration...slight).
The victim said he believes he was the victim of "car hopping," in which teenagers look for unlocked vehicles to search. He said he and his family were running late Friday evening and "unfortunately ... left the house rather suddenly, forgetting to lock the cars."
I hope, for his sake, this guy gets these back. I have a feeling the thieves don't even know what they are in possession of.
