I thought it was pretty cool when MPD issued a press release announcing that:
On June 24, 2010, a large number (more than five hundred) of baseball cards was found in a grassy area in East Potomac Park near the Tennis Center. The person who found the cards recognized their potential value and notified the police who recovered the items as found property. Thus far, the Police Department has been unsuccessful in locating the collection’s owner.
But I find it a little disconcerting that they still include this info on their email reports (most recently, last Friday Oct. 22nd). I actually love baseball cards. Or used to anyway. But you’ve made your announcement. Noted. It was a nice gesture. But it’s time to move on.
Now if it was baseball autographs…
