Balloon Boy's Balloon on Display

Do you remember the "Balloon Boy?"

He was the child who supposedly floated away in a homemade UFO-shaped balloon in Colorado in 2009.

It sparked a massive rescue effort and it was all a hoax.

Well, the saucer his father created has been put on display at a sports cards store in Aurora, Colorado.

The shop's owner bought it for around 25-hundred dollars and says he will eventually cut it up so he can sell the pieces to benefit charity.

Police have said Richard Heene and his wife faked their son's balloon adventure for a reality show they were pitching.
