Dealers to Fan: Sell Home Run Ball Now

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

Matt Murphy may be living it up in Australia, knowing he’ll soon have a nice addition to his bank account, but sports memorabilia dealers say he’d better not wait too long.

Barry Bonds has already passed himself on the all-time home run list, bashing #757 just a day after breaking Hank Aaron’s all-time career record. If Bonds makes good on his promise to continue playing, he could approach 800 by the end of next season.

Even for those who weren’t enamored with him, Bonds’ new mark created a bit of a buzz in the marketplace. When will Murphy decide what to do with the ball?

Assuming he chooses an auction house, which one will get the job? A few companies are ready to help him sell.

Steiner Sports has already offered $500,000. "We’re in hot pursuit," company President Jared Weiss told the New York Daily News. "We want that ball."
