Barry Got Bacsik → Sir Makes-a-Lot?

Two more days to rummage through the sofa cushions for the few hundred thousand dollars it will take to buy Mike Bacsik's historic 31st career HR allowed (bid here). Matt Murphy, who turned down a $500,000 offer immediately after catching the ball, is now looking at a top bid of $248,148 as of 7am PST this morning - approximately 55 hrs before the auction ends. Barring a major last-minute run-up in bids (possible but unlikely), Mr. Murphy might need to try selling ancillary items from his lucky day to make up the difference. And hopefully with more success than this attempt.

Awesome post. I love your ebay stalking!!!

Does Murphy have the underwear that he was wearing at the time up for bid?

Someone did buy the underwear, but turns out it's not very comfortable

Considering he was pummeled when he caught the ball, I assume the jersey is covered in assorted fluids. Not sure if that makes it more valuable.
