The ball was caught by a 22 year old fan who then sent it to auction. Showing the same respect to the eventual buyer as he did to the integrity of the game, Bonds called the purchaser "stupid" for paying $752,467 for the ball. The purchaser, Mark Ecko set up a website asking fans to let him know what should happen to this famous baseball. Over 10,000,000 fans determined that is should go to the Baseball Hall of Fame...with an asterisk! It is currently in Cooperstown New York
Something about baseball and the hold it has on the imaginations of the American Public. Tomorrow, the most valuable sports card in history and it's Canadian connection.
