Default Stolen BGS 9.5 1986-87 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan Rookie Card Serial #0009527212

I am a member of CU forums and unfortunately this is my first post here.

I apologize up front for blowing your board with this, but it may help me resolve this problem.

Please pass the word: I had a BGS 9.5 1986-87 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan Rookie Card w/ Beckett slab Serial #0009527212 (see the pics below) stolen from me by the following person in Canada (see the point of contact info below).

I am presently attempting to recover the item and have legal authorities involved. However, it would help me if anyone spots the card online via Facebook, various sports card forums, ebay, craigslist, etc. to direct the police towards a lead on the location of the item. Or if they are contacted by the person below looking to broker a deal. I won't go into the long background story here, but this was a trade that went bad and I did not vet the thief properly up front...now I am paying the price. 100% my fault for making a poor decision to deal with this low life scum bag, but I will not give up until the situation is resolve (criminally and in the civil realm). I have posted a similar msg on other sports cards collecting sites. The last physical known location of the card was at the address below.

Thief's POC Info:

ANTHON (aka STEPHANE) BLANCHETTE
147 RUE TURCOTTE OUEST
THÉTFORD MINES QUÉBEC
G6G 1G2
Phone: 418-814-9137
Email: momocard@hotmail.ca

This is one side of a story. I don’t think the other person’s personal information should be allowed to be posted here.

He has done this to others and his info is on other boards as well. Warning to all as he is pushing vingate cards as offerings.

All of the above, yes.

He approached me with a this card. Offering a 1 for 1 trade.






I did some basic checking on him, but not enough. There red flags, but when I saw the "proof of life" picture, I figured we are good.We sent on the same day. Then he sent this fake GMA card (not the PSA card we agreed about) in the box via UPS.



So yes, 100% fraud. He went silent as soon as I complained about the fraud. I obtained the services of a legal attorney in the area and informed the authorities. However, it would help me if someone discovers this card on the market to expedite its return. I have a mountain of evidence and support, so I am not worried about that.

Additionally, due to the help of the great CU community forum, I have the great help of a honorable Quebec native citizen.

But overall this sucks.

Hey Jay,
I am with you about 99.9% of the time and personal info is generally not allowed to be posted. I think in this situation, with what I have read, we might be ok on this one time. I don't mind talking about and exposing people doing bad things with names, addresses etc..... That said the original poster should post more often on our board. But getting scammed sucks and I hope he gets his card back. The OP's name needs to be out here too.,.,.,and it is.. Alex Ram.thun

Seems like with this address involved this would be an easy case.

Why would you send an $8,000 USD card to someone you don't even know?

Now I did some research online and it looks like this criminal has been doing this to people for many years. Check out the link below:

On top of page 9, it says the following:

He's currently trying to sell a frosted Gretzky OPC PSA 8 rookie in a FB group.

Yeah, doing that level of trade through the mail with someone you don't know is just asking for all sorts of trouble. Not worth the risk, especially with the subs that Jordan has. Holy jeez. That's an exceptional specimen of that card. Not sure why you'd want to trade that thing, but whatever floats your boat. Good luck in nailing this clown.

Maybe because the Gretzky is worth 30k??? Someone offering a much more expensive should be a red flag.

Yeah but it was from Canada, there are a lot more high grade Gretzkys up there, depressing the local market...
