In case you’ve ever wished you had an extra digit, former MLB player Jose Canseco says he’s selling the finger he shot off on eBay. Bonus: It’s the middle finger and you can never have too many of those.

[su_center_ad]In October, Canseco accidentally shot his finger off, but doctors reattached it.

However, last Thursday while at a poker game, it fell off.

On Monday night, Canseco tweeted that he will be selling the finger, along with the .45 caliber Remington gun that shot it off on the bidding site eBay.

“The eBay ad will read slightly used middle finger with 462 home runs could be used as a stirring straw for drinks,” Canseco tweeted.

Ebay does not allow the sale of firearms or body parts, but whatever.

    He should donate his brain to science. Maybe they can figure out what happened and prevent it from happening to others.

      Before or after it rots and falls off?

        I’m sure it had nothing to do with the massive amount of steroids he injected.

          I’m so old fashioned. I buy beauty supplies on eBay. Never thought about getting a rotten, smelly detached finger there.

        I’m thinking that it may be too late to have much choice…

    Ty Cobb thanks him for becoming the most hated baseball player of all time….

    Sounds a little desperate to me, what happened to the millions he made playing ball?

    • Foundryman November 18th, 2014 at 4:53 pm

      Steroids and gambling and guns would be my guess…

    How in hell did it fall off while he was playing cards?
