Hmmm...insurance should cover it due to something breaking in the house/apt. It's a matter of the deductible vs the book value. Getting a bunch of cash to go purchase what you need or to just replace it. Plus the cleanup.

Collecting TCU Alums: LaDanian Tomlinson, Andy Dalton, Jeremy Kerley etc.
Looking for Mike Schmidt Pre-1980's, Auto, GU, and GU/Autos

Not always - in fact, most standard homeowner's policies specifically don't cover collectibles unless you purchase a specific rider to cover them.

+1 that is what I was saying above. I know in Missouri where I am you have to have them extra coverage for them.

Sorry to hear of your sudden loss. If you are still interested in collecting I can send you some of my Griffey duplicates to keep your interest in the hobby. Would hate to see a collector leave the community.

As an Insurance Broker in the state of Missouri I can say that most all companies do not cover collectibles under a standard homeowners/renters policy.

I am truly sorry to hear of your loss. I hope that your policy where you live does cover your cards.

RE: SOMEBODY CRY WITH ME PLEASE
Thank you everyone for the kind responses and especially to the other Griffey collectors in offering me some of their duplicates. I will not be accepting your offers at this time as luckily this was just my box of duplicates so my main collection is still good. Some of the cards in the box will also be ok as well cause they were in top loaders and sleeves.

After reflecting on it I am looking at the positive things I can find in it. At least every card that is ruined I have another one of and I saw another member on here that made collages out of damaged cards so I am going to make a Griffey one with his cards and a Mariners one with those damaged ones.

It was tough to see and deal with but $#!+ happens and at least my girlfriends response was "Well you will just have to buy more." I am looking forward to that.

SUPERCOLLECTOR OF KEN GRIFFEY JR AND MICHAEL SAUNDERS
