Wichita police say about $50,000 in sports memorabilia — including Babe Ruth autographed baseballs and a World Series championship ring from the 1985 Kansas City Royals — have been stolen from a sports bar.
Police responding to an alarm early Monday found a broken window in the back of Players sports bar in west Wichita. The burglars apparently smashed a glass display case that housed the stolen memorabilia.
Police say the stolen items also include a Mickey Mantle autographed baseball card, two Super Bowl rings, a 1985 Oklahoma football championship ring and a 1981 Nebraska Big 8 championship ring.
Investigators say it's likely the memorabilia will end up for sale on the Internet or at other sports collectible shows.
