But think about it, unlike most other potential theft items, They're not that heavy to carry, there's no annoying cables or anything for you to pickup, you literally just have to grab the box or binder of cards and leave. Also, Yugioh cards won't usually be reported.
Yeah, TCG cards get stolen a lot because of these reasons, but you missed a couple other critical ones:

1. Even if they're reported, the police may not take it seriously
2. It's a valuable good that is intentionally unmarked
3. They're easy to liquidate, often at the same places you steal them.

Since cards are interchangeable, there's nothing to stop thieves from swiping a bag at a Magic Grand Prix, selling the valuable cards (to a few different vendors for safety) and then leaving with the money with nobody the wiser and no way to track them down unless there was a security camera that happened to catch the act itself.

"Rare card? That sounds just vague enough to be the Blue-Eyes White Dragon!"
"I want your complete card collection kid and I won't take no for an answer!"


"Curses, foiled again! Ok I'm just going to go get my friend and we'll rob your house later."


Really? They stole a 15 year old's card collection, after befriending him? Have some common decency you pair of scumbags!

Bluh. One of my decks alone is worth over $400, and I spent a lot of time tracking down all the cards I needed (for each of my six decks).
Admittedly, I'm a fair bit older than 15, but if someone stole my cards, I would be rightfully pissed.

Stealing trading cards from a kid... that is low, man. That is low.
I think two someones are deserving of a Penalty Game.

I have a pretty nasty story. It wasn't a friend, but a member of the family. To be specific, it was the elder brother of my adopted siblings who we allowed to live with us (he was 17 at the time). He returned our kindness by stealing from us in the form of cash and my DS Lite and several games. We found proof when he attempt to put back a gift card we had known to have disappeared and traced it's transactions back to him. When we confronted him about it, he left and broke off contact. We still haven't heard from him.

While the betrayal hurts, it's worse to know that his actions forced him to deny himself a true good in his life, a family that loved him and cared for him and would help him no matter what his situation was. We still hope he turns his life around but it's just as possible that he could die and we would never know about it.

Wow... That's fucked up... I mean, that kid probably trusted you and shit and then you go and disown said trust... all for some money? Shit...

Have you ever had something valuable stolen from you by a so-called friend? Share your stories in the comments.
I remember befriend this one drug dealer/user in high school (even though I didn't know that at the time) and he end up stealing my copy of Pokemon Emerald as well as one of my friend's copy of Mario Galaxy by convincing the both of us that he was just going to borrow them for a "few days"... He told us both that he not only lost the copy of Mario Galaxy, but also that his so-called "girlfriend" from another school both erased my Pokemon Emerald save file, but also stole it from him to "teach him a lesson"...

To this day, I still hate him for bullshitting me for those so-called "excuses", given how he was apparently younger than me as well as he openly admitted to me about using and selling drugs on (and off) campus... which lead to a couple of police officers asking if I was his "accomplice" in the whole ordeal since we appeared to be "very close friends" from an outsider's perspective...

They should have challenged the police officer to a duel and bust out. It always works in the anime.

Hey, why not steal some Bitcoins too? That'll be totally worth it.

Stealing a kid's stuff? No matter what I personally think of the game, and I have a low opinion of it, you still shouldn't do that ever, even if you're a criminal.
