Trophy: The Long Con
Complete the "Like a Fiddle" mission Bronze

Hardy's Stolen Art are collectibles featured in "The Heist" downloadable content for Marvel's Spider-Man. Unlocked after completing the mission Long Lost Loot, these are art pieces stolen by former cat-burglar Walter Hardy and hidden throughout the city by him. There are ten different art pieces scattered around the map: one in Central Park, two in Greenwich, three in Hell's Kitchen, two in Midtown, and two in Upper East Side.

Spider-Man agrees to help NYPD's Detective Mackey of the Greenwich precinct track down paintings that were stolen by Walter Hardy when he still operated as the "Black Cat". As Spider-Man looks for the paintings, Mackey relays Walter's backstory to the hero. Walter's skill as a thief eventually caught the interest of the Maggia criminal organization. When Walter refused to join the Maggia, he let himself get arrested and supposedly died drowning in a failed escape attempt from Ryker's Island.

After collecting all of the stolen art, the side mission Like a Fiddle is unlocked. Spider-Man returns to the precinct and discovers from the detective's disappearance that Mackey is actually Walter, who faked his death and took on an alias to ensure that the Maggia wouldn't go after his daughter, Felicia Hardy. Before he leaves, Walter asks Spider-Man to take care of the new Black Cat.
