That would be a hair-pulling dilemma indeed. Imagine having that ball and fretting over whether or not Barry will come back or not. If he waits until Barry is signed, that will already reduce the ball's value. So it's really a game of chicken. Not that I would mind having that burden to deal with, but it's an interesting game.
How much longer would you all have waited to sell the ball? Risk holding it and hope Bonds never plays again? Or cash in right away? Wait until you hear that Bonds signs with another team and pull the trigger?
