GTS Distribution was the victim of theft, with several high-end cases of Panini football and basketball cards stolen from its Southern California warehouse.

The GTS Distribution warehouse in Southern California was robbed of several cases of high-end Panini football and basketball products over the weekend. 

Police in Anaheim, Calif. are investigating the incident and GTS is asking for the public’s help in recovering the stolen merchandise by being aware of and reporting any offers to purchase these products at suspiciously low prices.
