The auction for Albert Pujols’ 700th home run ball in the MLB is over and the sale price has been made official.
The story of an impeccable career in the Major Leagues had an unforgettable memory on the 700th home run ball. Albert Pujols retired from the MLB as one of the four players who hit at least 700 home runs in the history of the Majors and the sale price of the ball of the historical homer of Major League Baseball has already been made official ‘Machine’.
On September 23, 2022, all those in attendance at Dodger Stadium stood up to applaud Pujols after achieving the 700th home run in the MLB. Marlowe Leal was the Dodgers fan who caught the ball few would want, turned down their offer to return it, and ended up receiving less than a million dollars.
Little money? An auction house offered $2 million to the fan who caught the 62nd home run ball in Aaron Judge with New York Yankees in MLB 2022, while the purchase record for a historic ball is held by Todd McFarlane and the US$3 million he paid for the souvenir of Mark McGwire’s 70th home run in the Major Leagues.
“The souvenirs are for the fans. I have no problem with him keeping it. If you want to return it, great. But at the end of the day, I don’t focus on the material.” was the message of Albert Pujols for the fan of Los Angeles Dodgers who did not return the ball for the 700th home run in the MLB. And in the end, how did he do with this decision? Bolavip tells you.
