Washington Post Sports Reporter Jacob Bogage joined David to discuss baseball card fraud.
Bogage writes: Baseball card collectors suspected rampant fraud in their hobby. Now the FBI is investigating.-- The green stadium seats shown on the baseball card are empty as Stan Musial, wearing a crisp white uniform, grips a bat and digs in. His eyes gaze toward the pitcher over his right shoulder, his white teeth peeking out from under a grin. It’s almost as though on this vividly colored card, issued in 1952 by the Bowman Gum Company, “Stan the Man” has spotted a fat fastball. The card’s lone obvious blemish is a stray black print mark on the white frame. Even with the defect, it sold in an online auction in late 2017 for $2,800.
