Baseball Pitcher Attempts to Sell Body Parts on EBay

 

Seattle talk show radio host Dave Mahler dared Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Jeff Nelson to take bone fragments taken from his elbow surgery and sell them on EBay.

Nelson followed through on the bet but EBay stopped bidding because EBay does not allow body parts to be auctioned on its site. The top bid was $23,600 before the auction was put to a halt.

Using "(the) bone chips for cloning or DNA extraction purposes" was prohibited by the Nelson. Other baseball players have sold goatee clippings (Tim Hudson of the Oakland A's) and used bubble gum (Luis Gonzalez of the Arizona D'backs) online.
