The one exception to the rule would be if I caught someone's milestone home run ball, in which case I'd hand the ball over to security in exchange for whatever the player in question was willing to trade. Honestly, though, if I had the chance to meet a Major League player to give him his home run ball, I'd probably settle for a picture and maybe a few minutes of small talk. To me, those experiences are worth more (emotionally) than a signed bat or ball.
The only ball I ever caught was the first night game at the new park in 1991 and I kept it. It was a foul ball off the bat of Fisk. It had a special new Comiskey Park logo on it and fans were offering me 50 bucks for it, I should have taken the 50 for it's worth about 20 to 30 bucks as we speak.
