The Deuce Bigalow star and his wife were out when burglars ransacked their Encino home, but they reportedly stole a treasure trove of items, including expensive jewellery and rare baseball cards from Schneider's coveted collection.

Sources tell that in addition to taking Schneider's wife's diamond engagement ring, the thieves also ran away with a mint condition 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie card, a collectors' item reportedly valued at $175,000 (£109,375) .

Two other cards featuring the baseball great were also swiped, but insiders close to the investigation tell the gossip site that since the cards are so rare, they will be nearly impossible to resell.
