Bidding on the Barry Bonds homerun ball #715 started this afternoon on eBay. The bidding starts at $10,000. The last Barry Bonds “milestone” ball (#700) went for $804,129 back in October 2004. Something tells me that this ball won’t go for anywhere near that amount. My prediction: $50,000. In unrelated news, Mr. Bonds turned 42 (!) today.7/25 Update:
The bidding is off to a very slow start. 6 bids so far and the latest offer is only $11,500.
OK, so much for my prediction. 42 bids now and the price is up to $125K with 8 days left on the auction.
