You can bid on a Light Saber Baseball Bat Signed by Padres and Star Wars Cast Members

The Padres are auctioning a signed David Eckstein model bat that is painted green like a light saber.

David Eckstein's wife voices the Star Wars:Clone Wars character: Ahsoka Tano (aka Snips).  Is that reason enough to create such an item?  Maybe yes.

Who do you think this appeals to? Jocks inherently don't get along with Nerds (and vice-versa), but maybe this piece of memorabilia can bring them together.  Or maybe it appeals to the very rare self loathing "Jock-Nerd hybrid" demographic, I'm not sure. 

I'd like to see someone take this onto Antiques Roadshow in 50 years.  The appraiser would tell you that if it was just signed by Star Wars cast members it would be worth something but since it was signed by the 2009 San Diego Padres, who went on to lose 50 straight games to end their season, that it's worthless.

Bidding starts at $500
