If I bought this, I'd need to buy a truck to take it to games.  It would be an awesome tailgating centerpiece.

In all seriousness, this "should" be at the stadium.

I'd argue that signature devalues the ball

Too expensive.  Would need to raise prices on some Shake Shack items to make this happen.

I thought you were selling a figurine, which I was going to buy for my son :(

He has a Redskins Mickey that he loves.

What's the matter?  You don't have $400 around the house ( and a truck and a  crane)?!  Thought nothing was too good for the boy!

Ummm... Why don't the Lerner's buy this and put it in the kids play area? It should never have gone to auction, this is one of a kind and the cost of making it far exceeds whatever they'll sell it for. It would be awesome at Nats Park. Far better than the monstrosity statues adorning CF gate.

Agreed. That makes the most sense. I could see personally going after something like this if I actually had some place to put it -- if it could be had for 500 bucks, but I doubt it.

The only thing that I don't like about it is the outdated nature of the design. It has the fudruckers style logo and the baby screech. But it is still a good snapshot in time. As memorabilia goes, it would make a great addition to the ballpark.
