Sorry, Rob Schneider– you gotta secure those B Ball cards, especially that 175,000 dollar Willie Mays card!
The comedian’s home was burglarized Friday night and uber-expensive jewelry was taken, but who cares about that- the burglar also took a Willie Mays rookie card valued at 175,000 DOLLARS.ÃÂ YEAH.
The “Deuce Bigalow” star was at the Comedy Film Festival in Montreal, and his wife and kid were out to dinner in L.A. when the thieves broke into their Encino home. They took Rob’s wife’s diamond engagement ring, a Cartier watch and…THE CARD.
Rob famously collects old baseball cards, especially from the ’50s and ’60s. The thieves also made off with a 1953 Willie Mays Topps and a 1971 as well. ÃÂ The Willie Mays cards were separate from Rob’s main card collection, which the thieves didn’t find.
One source familiar with the investigation tells TMZ that the Willie Mays card is so rare, it will be difficult or impossible to fence it. That’s a real bummer…Rob- get your expensive things insured! Especially nearly priceless sports memorabilia, mmmkay?
