Marc Ecko Google News Comment on Barry Bonds Home Run Ball

Marc Ecko, the fashion designer who bought Barry Bonds’ 756th home run ball for $752,467, has commented on Google News on a story about his plan regarding the record-breaking baseball. Ecko’s website,, asks users to vote whether they should give the ball to baseball’s Halo of Fame, brand it with an asterisk, or shoot it into space.

A selection:

Although I don’t necessary agree with everything that has been written about my decision, I’m fine with it because that’s what this is about…bringing this debate over “who did what” to a public forum and letting people — reporters included — voice their opinions. I know what I’d like to see happen to the ball, but I’m only one voice. You know what you want to happen to the ball, as well, so make your voice heard by voting at http:\\

    The is the auction of the century! Clothing designer Marc Ecko was the winning bidder in the Barry Bonds 756 home run ball, and through fan voting decided to send it to Cooperstown with and asterisk on it. Now if that’s not the dumbest thing we’ve ever heard of, this definitely takes the cake…check it: is for the people! So now YOU the people have the opportunity to own a piece of HISTORY (sort of)

    You are looking at the official Barry Bonds 000.756 HOME RUN BALL! Yes people, it is true! WE HAVE IT! This quite possibly (we’re not 100% sure) might be the ball that Barry fouled out with in a game this season. (Since we’re not sure if this is the ball, we’re not completely sure of the game either) And if our calculations are right (we’re not sure), this ball was almost a home run, but missed it by 000.244%! That’s what makes it the .756 home run ball! (We think). It comes encased in what appears to be glass, though we’re not sure, and is really, really nice. Its in great condition (except for the words and these funky red thread on it), and can be yours! Now I know you might be asking yourself, why should you believe this is the coveted Barry Bonds .756 ball? WE believe it! Especially since when we obtained the ball, Kanye West’s new song “Barry Bonds” was playing! IT’S A SIGN! (Hot song by the way, check it out). Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of history!!!!!

    Unlike the Marc Ecko 756 ball, which will be stamped with an asterisk resembling one of his logos, this ball with have a very unique STAR (much like our logo, as seen on emblazoned on it! How cool is that?!


    The winning bidder will received the ball, exquisite jewel case, AND will get a FREE item from our 101 Clothing line of their choice!


    Since all orders on come with a FREE CD (all genres) and POSTER, the winning bid will get the new KANYE WEST album featuring the song “BARRY BONDS” and a poster as well! You can’t beat that with a baseball bat! That’s a home run, like:


    Bid here!!:
