The items come direct from Bonds and include signed letters of authenticity from baseball’s all-time home run leader. They’re also MLB Authenticated.

Home run #716 isn’t a direct milestone, however, it’s put Bonds two ahead of Babe Ruth on the all-time list.

According to Goldin Auctions, this is just the second time a bat attributed to a career home run of 700 or higher has been offered for sale.
