Posted By: <b>gary Nuchereno</b><p>For 12 k I will pick it up in person and bring it to your front door!!!! You would have to think most expensive planefare anywhere in the U.S. is 600/700 round trip. 15k is a little steep<br />but a great bat if it's the real deal.<br />

Posted By: <b>Kenneth A. Cohen</b><p>Before I decide whether I want in on this or not, have you done the math as to how many game-used bat sliver cards it can produce - and for how much will each card sell? <img src="/images/wink.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Chris Mc</b><p>I have a wood chipper you can toss it in. It will come out in a million pieces. A buck a throw and you've made a few hundred thousand. I chip up stuff like this all the time for Topps.

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>If we're all dividing it, should we split it width wise or length wise? I vote length wise, although that bend in the bat might make for some difficult cutting.

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>Bob, maybe the seller meant that the guy who authenticated the bat is infamous?

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>Dude - if you get in on this with us, sure, you'd be spending more then on that card but you'd have a much more significant chunk of bat then that toothpick.

Posted By: <b>anthony</b><p>i dont know...i just cant see spending that kind of $ on a significant item like this and chopping it up into however many pieces...if it were $100k then possibly but those pieces would have to be pretty small to make up $685k...

Posted By: <b>Kenneth A. Cohen</b><p>That's the whole idea. We're going with the microscopic particle of game-used bat card. The woodchipper should do the trick. No telling how many cards that bat will enable us to produce. Eat your heart out Topps! Who wants a piece of the action?
