Barry Bonds home
run ball not the most expensive
Experts in baseball
memorabilia claim Barry Bonds home run ball far below what you
Matt Murphy from Queens, N.Y. may be the happiest baseball
fan, but he sure won't be the richest, claims Yahoo Sports.
According to experts the online portal quotes, the Barry Bonds
home run ball caught by Matt Murphy would get him about
$500,000. Definitely not petty cash, but nowhere near the $3.3
million fetched by Mark McGwire's 70th home run ball in 1998.

Barry Bonds finally took the home run
record from Hank Aaron by hitting his 756 homer yesterday during
the game with the Washington Nationals, which the Giants lost
8-6. Visit our home page to watch the video of Barry Bonds
hitting the #756 on Tuesday night.
How much does a Barry Bonds rookie card
go for? Around $20 bucks. And believe it or not, the value of
his rookie card is actually declining, down from $40 an year
ago. Many Bonds memorabilia owners blame the steroids scandal
for the depreciating value of their merchandise.
Did you know: Barry Bonds has played for only
two MLB teams: the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1986 until 1992 and
at the San Francisco Giants since 1993.
