A Michael Jordan rookie card was among the valuable items stolen from a Chicago memorabilia shop over Memorial Day weekend.

The owner of Elite Sports Cards & Comics, Ronnie Holloway, told TMZ Sports an estimated $100,000 worth of merchandise was taken during the heist. In addition to the Jordan rookie card that Halloway valued at $25,000, other items taken from the Lincoln Square shop included rare cards of Babe Ruth, Larry Bird, Jackie Robinson and Walter Payton.

Reports say the thief broke in through a back window, using tools to cut through concrete and metal bars.

The robbery — which took place May 31 at 3:44 am, according to the Chicago Police Department — was caught on surveillance video, showing the masked thief stuffing items into a bag.

Holloway has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
