View Full Version : Barry Bonds HR Ball

Back in the day you could buy HR balls at the Reds giftshop. They were balls that landed in behind the fence at Riverfront. I bought one in 1987 and the certificate says it was hit by Barry Bonds off Bill Gullickson on 8/18/87. I looked it up and it was his 34th career home run. Other than his milestone HRs, I'm guessing that there are very few Bonds HR balls that can be authenticated in any way. I'm curious if any of you think it would be worth putting up on Ebay. If it wasn't Bonds, I'd write the guy and see if he wanted it, but I'm not giving that scumbag anything. I know it's not #756, but what do you think #34 might sell for?

I know what it's worth to a real baseball fan... a piece of chewed bubble gum. But I'm wondering what you think some idiotic Bonds fan my pay for it? :dunno:

My little league team could use an extra practice ball so I'll throw it in the bag if you can't sell it. That's about all it's worth to me.
