The Best Of Barry Bonds For Sale


PhillyPurge is selling Barry Bonds' integrity on Ebay.

Nine bids as of last night. Auction ends at 12 a.m. Friday. The going price so far is $3.35.

Dennis Bakay at the Pottstown-based site writes:

So, you might ask how did we at Phillypurge.com acquire Barry's integrity? We procured it just recently when one of our writers was on assignment. Believe it or not, it was on the streets since the late-fall of 1998 when Barry decided to get back at McGwire and Sosa for stealing the attention during their homerun chase for Maris' single-season homerun record.

Shirt The description of the item goes into detail about how Bonds' intregity has been at odds with his ego for years - a sort of Darth Vader v Anakin Skywalker battle.

The integrity sounds like an ambiable, if tread-upon, sort.

If you are not willing to spend a buck on Bonds' integrity, PhillyPurge has t-shirts for sale.
