Derek Jeter's Childhood Home Is Going On Sale For a Measly $140,000

Attention, Derek Jeter fanboys: Today is your lucky day! As first reported by the New York Post, the biggest piece of Derek Jeter memorabilia ever is about to go on the market within the next couple of weeks. And while we wouldn't exactly classify it as "cheap," it's easily worth the price for hardcore DJ fans.

So, what's the good news? Well, Kalamazoo, Mich. resident Kelly Mohamed has decided to sell her blue and gray house and move to Georgia. And her house has an interesting back story—namely that it's the house that Jeter grew up in as a kid before signing a deal with the New York Yankees in 1992. As legend has it, DJ honed his skills on the baseball diamond by spending hours at a time throwing a ball up against the side of the house and fielding it in the grass.

That's not the best part, though. The real story here is that the house is only going for $140,000. For those keeping track at home, that's more than $100,000 less than the projected value of the ball used during the at-bat that yielded Jeter's 3000th hit last year. And we're talking about a whole house here!

So, for the price, this house is a steal. Which is why we hope Mrs. Mohamed understands when a bunch of middle-aged guys wearing No. 2 jerseys show up at the open house.
