So, apparently the ball that Alex Rodriguez hit for his 500th home run will be auctioned off online.
SCP Auctions said bidding will begin Jan. 20 for the ball recovered by a college student at the old Yankee Stadium when A-Rod hit No. 500 on Aug. 4, 2007. You might recall that it was a screamer off KC’s Kyle Davies.
SCP also sold the balls Barry Bonds hit for his 755th and 756th home runs; No. 756 went for $752,467. If that seems insane to you, consider that Mark McGwire’s 70th home run run ball from 1998 sold for $3 million at auction. Wonder how much it’s worth now?
