WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man says he plans to begin rebuilding a collection of more than 500 Ken Griffey Jr. baseball cards that were stolen from his home.
Christopher Fevurly says thieves broke a window in his home and stole the cards, a television and computer monitor while he was in Arizona to watch the Fiesta Bowl.
Fevurly told KAKE-TV he was 11 years old when he began collecting Griffey's baseball cards in 1989. Griffey began playing in the major leagues that year and quickly became Fevurly's favorite player.
Some of the cards might be worth $50 to $75 each, but Fevurly says most have only sentimental value. He says he plans to start the collection again because he wants to pass the cards on to his son someday.
