the public has spoken

Marc Ecko, the fashion designer and "hip-hop mogul" who bought Barry Bonds' 756th home run ball for $752K, decided to let the public vote on what to do it. Ecko offered three options: shoot it into outer space, send it to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, or send it to Cooperstown with a big asterick branded onto it (denoting the shadow under which Bonds broke Hank Aaron's record).

The results: 19% wanted it shot into space, 34% wanted it to sent to Cooperstown unblemished, and 47% wanted it branded.

Interestingly, the Hall of Fame has said that they will accept the altered ball into their collection.
