SAN FRANCISCO -- Online bidding began Tuesday for Barry Bonds' 754th home run ball along with the bat the home run king used between Nos. 754 and 755, the latter of which tied him with Hank Aaron.

Sotheby's/SCP Auctions will handle the sale of both items at www.scpauctions.com after also assuming the duties for the No. 755 ball and No. 756, which Bonds hit Aug. 7 to break Hammerin' Hank's 33-year-old record.

Both items used by the 43-year-old indicted slugger currently up for bid have a starting price of $2,500.
