Issue:

Barry Bonds record breaking home run baseball was purchased by Marc ECKO, a fashion designer who has placed the baseball's future in your hands.

Belief:

If you don't cast your vote, you can't complain what happens to the ball. All you sports fans, if you don't vote to keep the ball on earth, it will be launched into space and an historical artifact will be lost forever.

I pledge to...

Bestow it- give the ball to Cooperstown. The ball that broke Hank Aaron's career home run record belongs in the Hall of Fame
27 Pledges
Brand It- Burn an asterisk into the ball with a branding iron, adding a permanent footnote to the record. Then, send it to Cooperstown.

Banish it- Put the ball on a rocket ship and launch it into orbit, a moon shot for the ages. Out of sight, out of mind.

Brand it... it belongs in cooperstown... but it has to be noted that the record was achieved while using banned substances.

Bonds deserves all the praise. Anyone naive enough to believe that many of the old timers like Aaron weren't high on something when they took the field?

Cool   On or off steriods, at the time, Bond's broke no rules of MLB and neither did Mark McGuire and so on.  The ball go's to the Hall and so does Bonds!  And please put Pete Rose in the Hall also!

The Bonds homeruns mean nothing.  The steroid issue has made his efforts a non issue.
Give it to Cooperstown.  I don't care what he has or hasn't done, he beat the all-time home run record and that is baseball history.  Branding it is just a stupid idea, Bonds broke that record fair and square.

Let's give the ball to Cooperstown

Marc Ecko is an idiot, if you didn't want it you shouldn't have bought it. Donate the **** thing to Cooperstown where people can appreciate it.
He shouldn't have cheated and lied and I can go on and on.  I hate Bonds.  Brand it and give it to Cooperstown so it will never be forgotton that he lied and cheated to get a record.
I don't really care what happens to the ball, for myself.  However, I do remember when I was a kid growing up in NY - we played baseball everyday!  Hank Aaron broke the Babe's record while I was a kid and that was a big deal - for the entire year leading up to the record breaking homerun and for the entire year afterward.  Barry Bond's record is important to kids all over this country too and we should give every kid who wants to see ths famous ball the opportunity to do so.  Let's give the ball to Cooperstown!
Steroids are why this record means nothing.
