The Value Of Mark McGwire's $3 Million 70th HR Ball Has Plummeted Big Time
© Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

If you watched Sunday's 30 For 30, you saw that famous comic book artist, Todd McFarlane, bought Mark McGwire's 70th HR ball at an auction in '98 for $3 million. Well, the value have decreased quite a bit since then

quote:

Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions now estimates the ball's current value at $250k to $300k.

David Kohler, who runs SCP Auctions, is a little more optimistic ... "$250,000 to $400,000, tops."

These guys know the business ... Ken's been dealing with high-end collectibles for decades and recently sold a rare Mike Trout baseball card for more than $900,000.

David specializes in game-used historic baseballs ... selling some of the most famous HR balls ever including Barry Bonds 762 ball, A-Rod's 500 and 600 HR baseballs and more.

In other words, they know the market.

I know Trout is a great player but how is it possible that one of his baseball cards be worth $900K and who is the idiot who bought it. Is it made out of pure 24K gold? FFS, I don’t think there is a Babe Ruth card out there that is worth 900K.

An autographed Ruth could fetch 7 figures. Especially in good condition.
