Nope. Sports memorabilia experts are pegging the value at about $400,000 to $500,000. It's nowhere near Mark McGwire's 70th home run ball back 1998 though...that thing fetched about $3.3 million.

You can thank Mr. Bond's steroids scandal for that.

Half a million bucks for a baseball? I had a hard time parting with $45 a piece for a couple of autographed baseballs.

Don't feel sorry for Hank. They played this video message from Hank Aaron on the stadium's big screen after the home run:
Quote:
"I would like to offer my congratulations to Barry Bonds on becoming baseball's career home run leader.

"It is a great accomplishment which required skill, longevity and determination. Throughout the past century, the home run has held a special place in baseball, and I have been privileged to hold this record for 33 of those years.

"I move over now and offer my best wishes to Barry and his family on this historic achievement. My hope today, as it was on that April evening in 1974, is that the achievement of this record will inspire others to chase their own dreams."

It's skill if you do it the natural way.
