Swindle by Gordon Korman
After a mean collector named S. Wendell (Swindle) Palomino cons him out of his most valuable baseball card, Griffin Bing must put together a band of misfits to break into Palomino's compound and recapture the card. There are many things standing in their way -- a menacing guard dog, a high-tech security system, a very secret hiding place, and their general inability to drive -- but Griffin and his team are going to get back what's rightfully his . . . even if hijinks ensue.
