Former MLB player Jose Canseco says he’s selling his detached digit on eBay.

The Canseco finger saga started in October when the Cuban-born, former Miami resident accidentally shot it off. Doctors reattached his finger, but apparently not well enough. Last Thursday while at a poker game, it fell off.

Canseco tweeted Monday night that he’d be selling the finger, along with the .45 caliber Remington gun that shot it off. Canseco hasn’t listed the items for sale as of yet, and didn’t mention a price.

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

It’s unclear how Canseco plans on listing both items for sale since eBay’s selling policy forbids the sale of both firearms and body parts.
