Two fellow collectors were victims of theft this weekend at the Troy, Michigan Show. Over 100k in political items were stolen from Ken Hosner and Mark Evans, both long time dealers in the political collecting hobby. You can read the full story here and if you are looking on ebay, craigslist, estsy and other sites and come across deals too good to be real, double check with someone and if you are suspicous contact the Troy Police Department.
A reward is currently being collected by APIC members to help ensure the items are returned to their owners.
can only hope that this story has a similar ending as the one of Wes
Berger from a decade ago, when his collection was stolen and returned.
