Mark Zuckerberg‘s Little League “career” is worth a lot of money to some folks… because a baseball card from when he was a kid sold at auction for six figures!!!
The Facebook honcho’s autographed Little League card from back in the day hauled in $120,750 in a fierce, five-day long auction.
The folks at ComicConnect.com started the bidding at $1 … so the final sale price shows there was a ton of interest in the card.
The anonymous buyer told the auction house the Zuckerberg card would join a collection already featuring rookie cards for MLB legends Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantleplus an Action Comics #1 … summing up Zuck as “the Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Superman of social media rolled up into one.”
The signed card — which is from 1992 — was also sold as an NFT, and that went for $1,345.
Mark played Little League in Westchester County, NY … where the trading cards were a novelty offered to families.
The card previously belonged to Mark’s former camp counselor, Allie Tarantino, and Zuckerberg signed it when he was 9 years old. Allie says he sold the card to help pay for his kids to go to college.
Mark even posted about the card last month on social media, fueling speculation he might try to swoop the card for himself. The buyer is anonymous, but as far as we know, Zuck doesn’t own Babe and Mantle cards … so, it seems like someone else got it.
The $120k sale price is pretty eye-catching, and here’s some other interesting numbers… Zuck had a .920 batting average in his 1992 Little League season, with 23 hits and one home run.
