Collectors apparently do have a soul, but the lack of interest in Barry Bonds’ memorabilia doesn’t always include one-of-a-kind pieces. One Chicago ballhawk is pleasantly surprised at the bidding for his latest catch.
Barry Bonds said Friday he hoped to continue playing next season which could mean the final home run of his career may not come until he’s reached well past Hank Aaron’s total of 755.
Dealers on the other coast are wishing it was Ken Griffey Jr. chasing the record. Bonds stuff isn’t exactly flying out the door, even with the record now in sight.
In San Francisco, the regulars waited, but there would be no 755 to chase, just stories to tell about the hunt for other historic balls.
