Like any good bargain hunter, Ken Griffey Jr. and his agent are downplaying the potential value of his 600th home run ball.
Mastro Auctions believes it could be worth $50,000-100,000 and they’re making it one of the centerpieces of an upcoming live auction in Chicago.
Ken Griffey Jr.’s agent thinks the fan who’s selling it will be disappointed with his cut of the proceeds since it’s not a record-breaking ball.
The difference of opinion is what likely led to the ball being consigned to an upcoming live auction by Joe Scherer, the Florida Marlins fan who wound up with it during a game earlier this month.
It may be too late, but MLB.com says the Junior camp has made an offer for the ball including some game worn memorabilia and a trip to the All Star game–but no money.
