A couple of weeks back, Jose Canseco, the former chemically enhanced Bash Brother famous for allowing a noggin-assisted home run while playing left field, managed to wound himself while cleaning a handgun in his Las Vegas home. As you can imagine, he’s trying to rid himself of any memory of that painful event. Toward that end, he’s announced that he’s selling the the Remington 1911 with lovely custom grips that de-digitized him. Oh, and he’s also selling the finger . . .

Apparently an attempt was made to re-attach the slugger’s left middle finger after the tragic mishap. But those efforts seems to have failed.

While we don’t know that particular tournament’s rules, we’re guessing that, valuable though it may be, the finger on the poker table didn’t qualify as a legitimate call or raise. And there’s no word as to whether or not it fell to the felt on the flop, though we’d love to know if Canseco just dropped the loose digit in his pocket or parked it in a glass of ice next to his dwindling stack of chips until he washed out of the tourney.

Sadly for Jose, as nationalpost.com notes, eBay doesn’t allow auctioning off body parts via their site. Perhaps the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has a spot for a small jar filled with formaldehyde and formerly live tissue. While Canseco was never elevated as an official member of the shrine, displaying his former middle finger to the baseball world seems a perfect end to his career.

  1. Sure, I’d love a 1911. One with a story is fine by me. I don’t want his finger, although my cats might enjoy playing with it. Outside.

  2. While its nicer than my 1911, I wouldn’t buy it even if I had the money….at least not from him. He made millions becoming a joke and his idiotic behavior cast a black eye on all gun owners, I wouldn’t reward him with my hard earned money.
    As for the finger……wtf????

  3. $0.00. It’s a Remington R1 with some ugly grips. They’re not as reliable as a Ruger 1911 and it’s just gawdy as sin.

    • My thoughts exactly. The gun didn’t “do” anything. He stupidly shot his own finger off by being careless and stupid with the gun.

      I still can’t figure out how the hell anyone could attempt to clean a 1911 without unloading it. The bullets and magazine kind of get in the way, don’t they? He must’ve been drunk or stoned during the incident.

    • “Remington that shot my finger off.”
      Yeah. Should have been one of those “Passively constructed…” posts.

  4. I’m not sure if I want a gun that has a taste for the blood of stupid celebrities. If MDA knows what they’re talking about, and they assure me that they do, then a gun with a taste for blood is like a dog, always wanting more of that forbidden food.
    This is why I buy new, unspoiled guns, or weapons from WWII, used by either Russians, or Americans. I don’t mind if my rifles and pistols have a taste for Nazis.

  5. I want a 1911, I was thinking of getting an RIA for $4xx, I wonder if he is serious I think I’d give him $450…. Hmm to make a twitter or not.

  6. For some reason, neglegent dischargers seem to think that the claiming the “cleaning” defense, cleans the offense as well.
    I guess it sounds way better to say that, instead of “I was fucking around and shot myself”

  7. Looks like a bog standard GI Spec 1911 other than being stainless, no extended beavertail, standard GI trigger, GI hammer, GI sights, aftermarket grips don’t add value, no idea of round count, no mention of spare mags, so…. $600?

  8. Sure I’d buy it…and all you guys thought it HAD to be a Glock brand Glock. At least we know it works 🙂

  9. “Give a red neck money and he buys blue stingray boots with it.” Jose has some red neck in him. That’s one fugly set of grips on that chrome whore house special.

  10. “Sadly for Jose, as nationalpost.com notes, eBay doesn’t allow auctioning off body parts via their site”

    They also don’t let you auction firearms.

  11. If I shot off my largest finger my wife would be royally pizzed and it would have nothing to do with my reduced capacity for doing yard work or cleaning up around the house. Just saying.

  12. Oddly, the police report says it was a 9mm. I’m guessing a Glock because you have to pull the trigger to disassemble it and quite a few folks have suffered negligent discharges as a result.

    He also says that his Tweets about his finger falling off were a hoax. The guy is so full of shit I wouldn’t believe anything he says. He’s a dumbass and deserves his pain and misfortune.
