MLB All-Time Home Run Leaders - Autographed Baseballs

Collect Baseballs from the Home Run Leaders

Every baseball memorabilia collector searches a signed baseball from one of the best in the MLB, particularly a player holding as prestigious a record as the All-Time Home Run Leader. Such an item is not only valuable, but a very cool piece of baseball memorabilia.

According to the numbers and the MLB record books, Barry Bonds is the All-Time Baseball Home Run Leader as well as the single season leader.

However, many baseball fans and media members think (it has not been proven) that Bonds used steroids and performance enhancing drugs to help add power to his swing.

Therefore, most baseball purists believe that Hank Aaron still remains as the MLB career leader in home runs.

The debate will continue until it has been proven that Barry Bonds cheated on his way to the title. Until then, these are the Top 10 All-Time MLB Home Run Leaders and their autographed baseballs:

Great hub! I focus a lot on getting autographs from hall of famers. I've been collecting since I was 8. I even made a hub telling people how I've gotten my memoribilia!

No, I am not in Wisconsin. Where I am we just got snow, ice, and rain. I have enough weather to deal with right now, even though it is probably not as much as you. Anyway, I like this hub of yours too. Have you checked out my hubs lately? I might not be a serious hubber, but I am doing more than I used to. Let me know what you think of them.
