Shrunken heads, Joe DiMaggio bat stolen from Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium

MANHATTAN -- The "Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium" was robbed last week, and police aren't ruling out an inside job.

According to TMZ, two shrunken heads and a Joe DiMaggio bat were taken from the museum.

Museum officials are offering up a $2,000 reward in the hopes of catching the thieves.

The Joe DiMaggio bat was from the Yankee great's historic 56-game hitting streak -- and the heads are from an Amazon tribe.

These items were tucked in among the twin-trunked elephants and the two-headed cows in the Odditorium and baseball room at Ripley's Believe It or Not -- a popular tourist attraction in Times Square.

The thieves apparently replaced the DiMaggio bat with a fake one.

Balls autographed by DiMaggio and Ted Williams were also stolen. On their own, they're not really worth much. The museum still has the certificates of authenticity.

Employees noticed the items were gone Wednesday, March 16th, and police have no leads right now, but they're not ruling out an inside job.

Museum officials say the shrunken heads, worth $19,000 and $15,000 -- will be replaced by other shrunken heads. There are apparently plenty in storage, according to TMZ.

As for DiMaggio's bat, officials say that is irreplaceable.

For now, it has been replaced by an autographed Michael Jordan bat from his time with the Birmingham Barons.
