Seriously??? Don't leave valuables in your room! Unless your plan is to collect the insurance money... Sounds fishy to me!!!

Why travel with a baseball card, or was it to be sold. I would leave it at home.

My sentiments exactly, why was the card there? If it was because he just bought it fine, but then why wasn't this in the safe? Sounds fishy to me too. Anyone who owns the card knows it's worth and would not leave it somewhere it can be taken. If it is legit which I doubt then I feel sorry for the person even though he/she is an idiot

Lock up your junk and perhaps you won't become a "victim" of theft. Dummy...

It's being kept frozen crygenically in Arizona. Someday when they find a cure, they'll clone the real Teddy Baseball and he can autograph the card in person.
But I heard some employee whacked it with a hammer.

There are only 4 hotels in Farmington, two are well-known scum-holes, one is higher priced but is known for a flow of drugs and the other is across the street from the known scum-holes.

I wouldn't bring anything of any value to any of them!
