Default USPS lost package--please keep an eye out

I'm sorry to report that the post office apparently lost the following John McGraw card somewhere between Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix and its destination in the Bay Area of California:


The package was insured but both the buyer and I would rather see that the card somehow survived. It is surely an unusual card -- I'm not sure there are any other known examples, at least in that condition. It bothers me a lot that it may be lost to the ages.

Please let me know if you ever see this card.

Ouch. Here's hoping it turns up. What a great card.

I like the card. If somehow that package ends up in NYC and I get my hands on it, I'm sending back a check only.

What a huge loss to you Todd, and the hobby.
My condolences, I really hope it turns up.

Regards,

I'll be sure to post if the card somehow ends up at my doorstep (I'm the buyer), but I think I have a better chance of finding it myself the next time I go slot canyon hiking in AZ. Anyone work at the Phoenix Intl Airport? Check the tarmac!

I've had the PO lose packages I've sent out for WEEKS -- and then show up. I bet this one comes back in one piece. If it does, whoever bought can make a few bucks by selling it to me. It's a spectacular card.

I recently had a package lost in San Francisco, zip code 94109.

The tracking number (VH612736607US) shows is was 'Out for Delivery' but never delivered (or signed for).

I had to file a claim with USPS.

I'm so sorry to hear about this.
I'll certainly be on the alert as I do my card scouting on the internet.
This card is such a beautiful rarity.

wishing you all the best, Todd

Barry
