C’mon, Olbermann, just buy the dang Buckner ball before Tuesday night … or make an anonymous bid


There are no bids recorded yet on eBay.com item 200662775706.

Be patient.

Seth Swirsky’s sale of the ball that rolled through Bill Buckner’s legs to end Game 6 of the 1986 World Series remains available for a mere $1 million (linked here).

Sale ends, as we wrote recently (linked here), at 8:37 p.m. PDT on Oct. 25 — the exact moment, 25 years later, when the play took place.

Some other things of note about the non-sale so far:

== Shipping is free.

== No returns or exchanges but it is covered by the eBay Buyer Protection Plan.

== Serious bidders only!

== Swirsky’s sales (as “juluke2” has a “100% Positive” feedback

And Charlie Sheen sticks to his estimate that it’s only worth $150,000, tops. Some others say if it fetches $500,000, that’d be something to shout about.

Considering Mookie Wilson’s signature is on it, it should be referred to as the “Wilson ball,” but that doesn’t have the same juju.
