    Send it to the HOF. That's where it belongs and let them decide what kind of exhibit should be set-up.

    Give it to OJ. It appears he's really into memorabilia that doesn't belong to him.

    If I had caught Bonds' 756th HR ball, I'd have kept it until the general feeling was better towards Barry, and then sell it.

    All this reminds me of the talk back in 1961 of putting an asterisk on Roger Maris' breaking of Babe Ruth's single-season HR record because Ruth did it in 154 games and Maris did it in 162.

    37 years later, no one even cared anymore as they rooted for McGwire-Sosa in their HR duel. Even those old farts who were pining for the asterisk in 1961 didn't care anymore.

    I'm not into baseball anymore, but from a society viewpoint, I think it's good that it gets branded with an asterisk before it goes to Cooperstown. It tells future generations what America thought of a guy who most people perceive as a cheater.
