Barry Bonds’ 716th Home Run Uniform and Bat Up for Auction
By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor
Game-used jerseys are a staple at high-end memorabilia auctions. But how about the complete uniform from a significant game? The uniform Barry Bonds wore when he hit his 716th career home run is up for sale through Goldin Auctions.
The lot includes virtually everything Bonds was wearing when he hit the home run on June 5, 2006 at AT&T Park in San Francisco: jersey, pants, cleats (complete with turf still attached), batting gloves and wristbands. Both the bat and jersey are signed.
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.
Currently, online bidding for the lot sits at $42,000. The live bidding portion of the auction begins on Saturday, May 20.
