2009 Bowman Sterling Tommy Hanson Gold Auto #35/50 BGS 9.5 AUTO 10

This card was skillfully stolen out of my checked luggage. I didn’t want to lose it so I hid it in a closed envelope inside the pocket of one of my folded pair of jeans at the bottom of my suitcase. When I got home last night, it was no where to be found. My luggage was checked at the International Airport in Charlotte, NC yesterday morning (Fri 23JUL10). Anyone have a clue if American Airlines will do anything about it? If you happen to see this card anywhere let me know, its currently the only one that is graded BGS.

For a card that is rumored to be #99 or lower, how does 29 (at the time of writing this) 2010 Topps Tribute Relic Auto Redemption cards of Stephen Strasburg all show up on ebay?  It seems that these cards would be harder to pull than what we were all chasing with Allen & Ginter. Stay tune, something is going on here….
