With baseball's All-Star game over, Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport is sure to be packed with throngs of fans trying to make their way home. There are, however, some alternatives to the long airport lines and TSA screenings. You could, for example, cruise home in a V12 super car that belonged to baseball legend Reggie Sanders.

For sale right now on AutoTrader.com is Sanders' 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish.

Sanders is a former right fielder who was famous for stealing bases and hitting home runs. During his 16-year career, Sanders played for eight different teams and managed to hit at least 10 home runs per season.

In 2006 Sanders became the fifth player to join the MLB's 300-300 club, meaning he has hit over 300 career home runs and stolen over 300 bases. Only seven other players have achieved this.

The car is being sold on consignment for Sanders by Online Automotive, a dealership in Phoenix, Arizona. According to Sean Williams from Online Automotive, the former Arizona Diamondback keeps a house in Phoenix and was likely to be in town for the All-Star Game.

Sanders bought the Aston Martin Vanquish new in 2005. Celebrity owned cars often come with paperwork or memorabilia that prove the car's history, but there is no need for that with this car. It has a metal plaque inside the Aston that reads "Hand built in England for Reggie Sanders."

If anything, the Vanquish's stats are as impressive as its former owner's. The car is powered by a monstrous 6.0-liter V12 that cranks out 460 horsepower. The engine is attached to an advanced paddle shift transmission that, Aston Martin boasts, can shift gears faster than the blink of an eye.

It still has less than 10,000 miles on the odometer and the dealer is asking $110,000, which is in the ballpark for similar Vanquishes for sale on AutoTrader.com.

This car would make a great addition to any baseball lover's garage. And even if you don't like baseball, you can still tell people that James Bond drove one just like it.
