This is just weird. Somebody steals the valuable baseball cards and ships them to California he says. They were never insured if they were even shipped. The man sues the USPS for losing them when he did not put them in their agency, can't prove they were shipped at all, and obviously were not insured.

This was my first impression. Why would u ship something that expensive?was it registered mail? Any insurance? U could probably have avoided such a loss with proper procedures? If they r lost it is indeed a tragedy. I know if some cards r kept in great cpndition they can be worth alot. My friend in air force had relative who had thousand of cards decades ago. They should be treated as gold like shipping a rolex

True enough if the cards were being shipped by the owner. In this case the owner states that the cards were stolen from him and that thief shipped them. It's all hearsay, but a thief is less concerned with taking a loss.

I once had some important legal papers to forward to Oklahoma for immediate filing. I considered certified or registered. The attorney said, "Just put em in the mail. I never saw them people work harder cause you paid more." I think he was right and that's what I've been doing since.
