Want To Buy Mickey Mantle's House?

by Paul Semendinger

October 20, 2023


Here is a fun story for a Friday afternoon.

Mickey Mantle's childhood home is for sale and you can buy in for just $7.00.

Well, sort of.

Before I get to the links to the story. I am thinking of an imaginary conversation between two baseball fans who also collect memorabilia:

Fan One: Hey, do have a Mickey Mantle baseball card?

Fan Two: Nope. I have something better.

One: His autograph?

Two: Nope. Even better.

One: A game used item, like a uniform or a bat or his glove?

Two: No. It's even better than that!

One: What is it?

Two: I own his childhood home.

Again, well, sort of. Or so it seems.

A memorabilia company, Rally, is going to belling shares of Mantle's home for only $7.00 each with the hopes that through joint ownership, the house can be made into a museum. They will be selling 47,000 shares. There are also bigger ideas associated with this, such as creating an Airbnd and/or a Little League field on the property as well.

Just a note, if you buy a piece of the home, according to Google Maps, Commerce, Oklahoma is about 19 hours away by car (from Yankee Stadium) just in case if you'd like to drive out to see your (part of the) property.

The big thing I'm thinking of is, "Who mows the lawn?" My goodness, that would be a long drive to have to mow 1/47,000th of the property.

"Honey, I'm going out to rake my leaf. See you in two days."

It's an interesting story if nothing else.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
