    The Bonds HR ball just went for $800,000 (number 700)

    If you had the money, would you buy a ball like that???

    I wouldn't buy Bond's ball, because frankly, I think the guy is an A-hole.

    But I would buy a part of history. Like a historic Babe Ruth ball or something.

    What would you do?

    I mean, if you had the means to do it.

    I would buy it for 800,000 if I knew that I could turn around and sell it for 1,000,000 or more and make a nice quick profit. I wouldn't care if the guy was an A**hole or not if it brought me a profit....

    O Cow...

    There is one guy that goes around and he has like a traveling museum.

    People laugh, but he's like charging a fee to go into his museum and see baseballs.

    Gotta love America.

    If I knew that it would bring me everlasting life, then yes, I would buy it. I don?t have anywhere near that kind of money, but I would see if I could somehow arrange to get it on credit. I mean, I would have forever to pay it back, wouldn?t I?

    If I was rich and had a German Shepard, it would make a nice expensive dog toy.

    My guess is that whoever did spend that money does hope to sell if for more.

    That is an insane amount of money though, for that item.

    People consider it an investment. If you turned around and sold it for double that 2 years later, that would be a good return.
