Jose Canseco, who will someday be viewed as the Deep Throat of the Dead Balls Era, is offering fans and anybody else the chance to buy a bat, base, and cleats that back in 1988 factored into his becoming the first player in major league history to steal 40 bases and hit 40 home runs in the same season.

In the sales pitch on his personal Web site, Canseco points out that “Only two players have been able to accomplish this since, Alex Rodriguez and Barry Bonds.”

Quite a club. Canseco, Rodriguez and Bonds will someday be viewed as the Murderers Row of the Dead Balls Era™. (Get used to it!)

Perhaps these items have been on sale for some time, or Canseco’s not a student of the game: Ex-Nat Alfonso Soriano pledged the 40/40 frat in 2006.

BTW: The asking price for Canseco’s detritus is $9,995.00.
