    Currently at $137,500 with about 5 days to go.

    Have to wonder if the current drama around his situation is effecting the value of the ball.

    I think McGuire's ball went for near 5.5 million, can't remember.

    That would have been more collectible though because the record was more sacred at the time, it's a bit tainted atm with all the controversy.

    McGuire broke the record before anyone suspected it, or at least enough to really care.

    Mcgwire broke the record with a bottle of andro, in his locker. Yes he used, however the retarded God of baseball, had no punishment written about illegal substances unitl recently. Like very recently, so anything that happened before the written..(law) doesn;t really matter.


    Todd Mcfarlane purchased the ball with one bid driving up the price, by himself as the ball was comparably priced to Bonds ball right now.


    Bet he feels like an idiot now.
