Was your sports-card collection stolen earlier this year? B.C. RCMP are looking for its owner

Mounties in Surrey believe the cards may have been stolen from anywhere in the Lower Mainland.

A resident(s) of the Lower Mainland region has lost a collection of sports trading cards — and may be of some value, financial or sentimental.

B.C. RCMP is now looking for its rightful owner after it was found during an investigation in Surrey exactly four months ago.

On Friday (Aug. 20), police explained in a statement they responded to a report of a suspicious person on April 20, 2021 at a home on 14500-block 106A Avenue.

While searching the residence, several boxes of collector's sports cards were seized as evidence suggested they were stolen "given the circumstances."

In the photos provided, there are three boxes containing cards of professional baseball and hockey athletes, and of the Donruss and Upper Deck brands.

One appears to be a gold-coloured tin, while another box features a Ken Griffey Jr. Upper Deck Collector's Choice card taped to the top.

Mounties are asking the rightful owner to retrieve the cards.

Surrey RCMP adds the public should get in contact with them if they know someone who had a series of sports cards stolen from the Lower Mainland earlier this year.

Anyone with more information is encouraged to call the detachment at 604-599-0502, anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go online to
