As Barry Bonds edges closer to Hank Aaron’s hallowed record, fans and collectors ponder where and when it might happen–and what will become of the baseball that could be the symbol of an ugly era.
He’s averaging a home run every 4-5 games, which would put him at 755 heading into the first week of August. If that holds true to form, Barry Bonds’ lonely pursuit of Hank Aaron’s all-time home run record would end in San Diego or Los Angeles.
In cities the Giants will visit from mid-July on, however, the question is being posed. ‘What would you do with the ball if it lands in your hands?’ For some, the potential value isn’t even a factor–or at least they can talk a good game. The man who owns the final home run ball belted by Henry Aaron might be seeing his prized possession actually increase in value because of the Bonds backlash. He’s certainly getting his share of attention.
The Capital-Times of Madison, Wisconsin sorts it all out.
