WICHITA, Kan. - A Wichita man's homage to Ken Griffey Jr., his favorite player of the past, was snatched as he sat at the Fiesta Bowl watching the star Kansas State players of the present.
During the nearly seven days he was gone in Arizona, his collection of more than 500 Ken Griffey Jr. cards went out the window, literally.
Christopher Fevurly says burglars used his daughter's high chair to smash out the window to his son's bedroom. Once inside, they took the baseball card collection along with a television and a computer monitor.
It's important that if you have a collection, catalog it. Many of the cards are part of numbered sets. The card's unique number could come in handy for a dealer trying to identify if an item is stolen.
