Harry Potter’s $40k Prequel Has Been STOLEN!

An extremely rare Harry Potter item has been stolen, and when we say rare, we’re talking about a 800 word prequel, hand scrawled by the series author J.K. Rowling herself onto a postcard. The hand-scripted card tells to the backstory of Harry Potter’s dad, James, and his best friend, Sirius Black, as teenagers.

Rowling has taken to social media, asking her 10 million followers not to buy this stolen piece of Harry Potter lore, whose estimated worth sits around $40,000, the New York Times reports.

The theft occurred last month in Birmingham, England when the home of the person who purchased the manuscript at a 2008 charity auction was burgled. The thieves also took jewels.
