I'm posting this as my friend who got his stuff stolen isn't a member on the forums.

A fine member of the upstate ny community got his collection stolen out of their car. Some thieves broke into his car and took only his specific things and left the other peoples stuff.

I'll have a list up when he sends it to me. But stuff include miscut duals SMS other unique cards

I saw this on Twitter as well, I'd assume that if you see anything on Ebay, here or other sites for Black bordered Duals, Foreign foils etc for cheap that they may be stolen.

Hadn't heard that yet. Were the other people's "stuff" magic, and if they were, were they relatively worthless? Seems strange.

"Home" store is Jupiter games in Vestal, ny. He is devastated. Contents include beta duals, beta power, miscut duals and lots and lots of foil japanese legacy staples.

But, if this were a sack full of money @ half that value, would you leave it in your car?

How have they been playing Magic for 6 years longer than it's been out?

I would assume that they store is referring to card games/collectibles/dnd/etc in general.

If any of our European members are going to the Bazaar of Moxen next weekend please be on the lookout for this collection.

If you run into whoever stole this collection please try to get the name and/or a picture of the person and email me immediately. I will pass the information on to Eli since he isn't a part of these forums.

Thanks.

EDIT: I haven't spoken to Coolio or MeddlingMage, but I would assume they would be fine with you emailing them also as they personally know Eli too.

I'm a bit disappointed with the "Blame the victim" attitude of some of the magic community.

The miscuts would be the easiest to identify, so any pictures of those might be helpful in tracking the cards down.

This doesn't help in the current situation, but members with high value collections should consider insuring their collections.

I asked my insurance company if my homeowner's insurance covers collectibles and they told me it only covered 2K worth. They referred me to collectinsure.com.

While I can't personally vouch for the company (I haven't had to file a claim), they are rated A+ on the BBB.

The premium was lower than I expected... a little over .5% per year to protect against theft, fire, water damage, and some other things (I think they even insure cards when you ship them with some carriers).

And no... I don't work for the company, I just thought some people on here might be interested to know that this is even a possibility.

I'd never go so far as to say that he got what he deserved, because that's both false and asinine.

My rule is this: if I can't keep them with me at all times, I don't bring them. I didn't even bring my virtually worthless trade binder to GP Pittsburgh. There are a multitude of things you can do to offset the danger of being robbed from your car. Even if you do everything you possibly could, your stuff could still get stolen. By now, everyone should know that's the risk you take, and if you're willing to accept that risk (I'm not), then do what you will. I hope he gets his cards back.

Nothing outside of the miscuts are truly unique enough for people to do a double take when they see one in person. Like others have posted before me, I would put up some photos of anything in that collection that would stand out. I know I have seen a decent amount of foil japanese xxx, so at a large tournament, if someone were to show them to me from their trade binder and didn't act all sketchy about it, I really wouldn't think they were stolen.
