Here are images of the man police in Fargo suspect stole a piece of Roger Maris memorabilia estimated to be worth $140,000.

The Hickok Belt, given to baseball legend and Minnesota native Roger Maris in 1961 after he broke Babe Ruth's home run record, was stolen from the Roger Maris Museum in Fargo's West Acres Mall at around 2:15 a.m. Tuesday.

On Thursday, Fargo police released surveillance pictures of the man they believe to be responsible for the theft.

In a Facebook post, police say that the man appears to have a patch on the left shoulder of the shirt or jacket they're wearing. There isn't one on the right shoulder.

Investigators told Valley News Live that they think at least one other person was involved in the incident. That’s because camera footage seems to show the burglar getting into the passenger seat of a car before riding away.

The original Hickok Belts have a jeweled, solid gold buckle and are worth up to $140,000.

Other winners of the “ultimate sports prize,” as the award is called, include Muhammad Ali, Mickey Mantle, and Arnold Palmer.

The belt started in 1950 and was awarded until 1976. It was discontinued until 2013 when LeBron James earned it. Since, Madison Bumgarner and Steph Curry have been honored with it.

Anyone with information on the suspect or the belt, should call Fargo PD on 701-241-1429.
