    Bonds' 756th ball going to auction
    By Janie McCauley, Associated Press Writer
    August 22, 2007

    SAN FRANCISCO -- No. 756 is going to auction. Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball will be sold online, and fortunate fan Matt Murphy figures to be a half-million dollars richer.

    The 21-year-old New York man said Tuesday he had no choice but to sell the ball — several people told him he would be taxed on the souvenir just for holding on to it.

    "It wasn't hard. It was simple math. I'm upset by the decision I had to make," Murphy said. "I wanted to keep it. I'm young. I don't have the bank account. ... It would have cost me a lot more to keep it."


    Bonds broke Hank Aaron's record of 755 with a shot into the right-field seats on Aug. 7 against the Washington Nationals.

    Sotheby's/SCP Auctions will handle the sale at http://www.scpauctions.com beginning Aug. 28 and going through Sept. 15. The starting bid has not been determined, and auction officials estimated the ball would bring at least $500,000.

    "This is the most historic baseball ever to be sold," said David Kohler, president of SCP Auctions.

    The ball from Bonds' 755th home run hit Aug. 4 in San Diego also will be for sale on the site. The same company sold the balls from Bonds' 700th homer and No. 715 that passed Babe Ruth for second place last season.



    Everyone involved hopes the buyer of the historic balls is willing to at least share them for a period of time — if not donate them altogether — with the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.

    "I really hope the person who does buy it is in position to loan it," Murphy said, a security guard close by him during a news conference at a restaurant near the ballpark. "Two weeks ago, history was made. I was lucky enough to be in the house."

    Murphy plans to share at least some of the proceeds with a friend who attended the Giants game with him. They were in town for a brief stopover on a trip to Australia when Murphy wound up with the lucky prize.

    Murphy left the ball in safekeeping with a bank in San Francisco during his more than weeklong trip to Australia. He returned to the Bay Area on Sunday to make arrangements for the ball.

    Bonds has said he believes his home run balls belong to the fans.

    "I haven't spoken with Barry," said Murphy, who is considering attending business school in New York City. "I would like to meet him."

    The City of San Francisco will honor Bonds in a public ceremony Friday.
    Я даже и не знал что за мячик который оценивается в полмиллиона долларов парень может платить налоги если оставит этот мячик у себя...

    Зато наварится в полмиллиона долларов минус налог (наверно половина )...

    Winning bids announced on historic Bonds home run balls

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Barry Bonds' record-breaking 756th home run ball was auctioned Saturday for $752,467, well more than the estimates by memorabilia experts.

    Home run No. 755, the ball that tied the record, went for $186,750, according to Sotheby's/SCP Auctions. Both final prices included the winning bid plus a 20 percent buyer's fee, according to the auction houses handling the sale.

    Bonds broke Aaron's record of 755 with a shot into the right-center field seats on Aug. 7 off of Washington Nationals pitcher Mike Bacsik in San Francisco.

    Matt Murphy, a 21-year-old student and construction supervisor from New York, emerged from a scuffle with the record-breaking ball after paying $100 for a $12 ticket during a layover on his way to Australia from his hometown.

    "I had hoped to keep the ball, but when I determined that was not the best strategy at this stage of my life, this definitely was the right decision," Murphy said in a statement released after the sale. "It is an honor to be a part of baseball history and I wish the new owner well with whatever they elect to do with the ball."

    Experts had predicted the ball that tied Hank Aaron's home run record would fetch about $200,000, and that the record-breaker would be sold for least $500,000.

    "I feel like I did the right thing with it," said Adam Hughes, 34, a plumber from La Jolla who came up with No. 755 in the left-center field seats in San Diego on Aug. 4.

    Hughes said that after taxes and auction house fees, he expects to take home about $90,000 from the sale. He said he would probably invest some of the money and use some of it to help out a cousin who just started college. He might also go on a cruise, he said.

    Both buyers did not want to be identified, said a spokesman for SCP Auctions.

    While the price for No. 756 exceeded expectations, the ball did not come close to the $3 million that was paid for St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire's single-season home run record ball in 1998.

    Most memorabilia experts believe Bonds' last career home run, which will set the new record, will garner more than $1 million.
