Surrey RCMP would like to reunite these baseball cards – and hundreds of others in the collection – with their rightful owner.

Police seek owners of sports trading cards seized in Surrey

Surrey RCMP are hoping for a home run in their quest to reunite two collections of sports trading cards with their owners.

Surrey RCMP are asking for the public’s help identifying the owners of sports trading cards that have been recovered in recent months, including a collection of baseball cards seized nearly three months ago in South Surrey.

In an appeal issued Wednesday afternoon, police said the cards were among items seized Aug. 9, when officers responded to a complaint of a possible weapon at a property near 162 Street and 40 Avenue.

At the time, an area resident described seeing heavily armed police swarm a property, and men ordered out of a barn emerge with bags of items handing around their necks; Cpl. Scotty Schumann confirmed stolen items were recovered.

Wednesday, police described the baseball cards as numbering in the hundreds and well-cared for.

The appeal was issued because efforts to date have been unsuccessful in reuniting them with the rightful owner.

The collection is among two that police would like to see claimed. The second was found Oct. 16 in north Surrey, in the 10600-block of 138 Street. It includes hundreds of collector-type sports memorabilia cards, including some that appear to have substantial value.

Anyone who believes the cards are theirs, or can identify the owner, is asked to contact the Surrey detachment at 604-599-0502 (file #2015-149255 or 2015-114296).
