The above horsehide holds the Rocket’s personal John Hancock, along with a signature acknowledging Clemens’ 350 wins and 4,500 strikeouts. The ball can be bought through the Roger Clemens Foundation for only $350. And 12 more bucks can get you a lovely acrylic display.
Interesting that the numbers would already contain *asterisks* - presumably saving any possible purchasers the trouble of adding them on themselves, a la Barry Bonds.
UPDATE: Emailers, we know they’re pluses, it’s a joke. Didn’t realize so many were so thick. If only we’d posted a pic to the right ball!
