Barry Bonds’ 756th Home Run Ball…What To Do?

September 18th, 2007 by Heywood

Given all of the steroid controversy leading up to Barry Bonds breaking Hank Aaron’s home run record, many people have considered putting an asterisk next to Bonds’ stats in the record books, and some even go as far to say that Bonds should not be recognized as the record-holder, because he cheated.

Fashion designer and entrepreneur Marc Ecko, however, has decided to add a democratic element to the decision as to what should be done with the ball, recently purchasing the record-breaking home run ball at auction for more than $750,000, and then setting up On Ecko’s site, you have 3 options to choose from: 1) send the ball to Cooperstown as is, 2) brand an asterisk on the ball and send it to the Hall of Fame, or 3) strap the ball to a rocketship and send it ball into deep space– a “moonshot for the ages” as Ecko puts it.
