A man accused of stealing a Mickey Mantle rookie card from Neuhart Cards and Sports Collectibles, in Ohio was arrested in Indianapolis while trying to sell it, police say. Last week around 1am, the thief smashed through the front window, broke several cases and stole the Mantle card, which is worth about $11,000 while leaving many other cards untouched.

A few days later, the card and “The Genius Thief” made the 3 hour drive about 190 miles West and tried to sell the card to various card shops in Indianapolis including a stop at Indy Card Exchange before ending up at The Dugout on the West side of Indianapolis.

IMPD was able to recover the stolen card and arrest Giancarlo Venditti of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, when he tried to sell the card at the shop.
