As covered everywhere but on this website, Barry Bonds hit his kinda-record-breaking 756th career home run earlier this year, and designer Mark Ecko purchased the ball at a Sotheby's auction for three-quarters of a million dollars. Here's what Ecko had to say:
"I wanted to democratize the ball and to give the ball to the people, to give the ball to America."
What does that mean? It means you can go to Vote756.com and vote to send the motherfucker into space. The ball, that is — not Bonds. Sorry if I got your hopes up. The other choices are to send the pristine ball to Cooperstown, or brand it with an asterisk before sending it to Cooperstown. But last I checked Cooperstown wasn't in space, so fuck those choices.
