A Real Hard Judgement Call
This documentary was very well done. It followed the case between the two guys that said they should have the 73rd home run ball. While watching it I was thinking the one that caught it should have the ball but after watching it I'm thinking the one that ended up with the ball should have had it. In a free-for-all situation like that, the one that walks out with the ball should keep it. It had me wondering how it would turn out in the end and I wasn't very surprised really. The only real surprise was what the lawyers for the guy that "found" the ball did at the end. Don't want to spoil it for you. Well worth a watch. And I'm not even a baseball fan.
Side note: The person that ended up buying the ball at the auction was once a very popular comic book artist for Marvel Comics. He later worked for Image Comics and created SPAWN. He owns a company now that puts out high quality collector figures. McFarland Toys.
