A Bridgehampton resident told Southampton Town Police that a trophy she had won at the Hampton Classic was stolen from her home—and turned up for sale on eBay.
Southampton Town Police are investigating the theft of a Hampton Classic trophy from a past winner who lives in Bridgehampton. The trophy has since been placed for sale on eBay.
The Snake Hollow Road resident noticed the trophy was missing after a friend told her there was a Hampton Classic champagne bucket trophy similar to hers listed for sale on eBay. The woman looked at the trophy listing and realized it was, in fact, hers from the early 1990s.
It is not known how long the trophy, which had been stored in a closet in the woman’s home since 1992, had been missing. The woman contacted the seller, demanding her cup back, but was told she would have to buy it back for $500.
Southampton Town Police said they would contact the eBay poster and are investigating the incident.
