    A postal worker has been charged by federal prosecutors for stealing baseball and other sports cards from the mail in Westchester and selling them. 

    John Bu, 38, a postal service supervisor, is accused of stealing thousands of professional sports cards of historic players like Larry Bird, Mickey Mantle and Thurman Munson last November. 

    He's gotten thousands of dollars from selling them, prosecutors said. 

    Bu was charged with possessing stolen mail. He appeared in White Plains federal court Thursday and was released on bail. 

    Attorney information wasn't immediately clear.
