When most people think of the New York Yankees and the all-time greatest players to wear the blue and white jersey, Yogi Berra is always at the top of the list. The 88-year-old is selling his 4,502 square foot home in Montclair, New Jersey for $888,000, an homage to the number 8 jersey that Berra wore from 1948 until 1963.
Berra called the six-bedroom house his home for the past 40 years and is selling after his wife Carmen's death last March. The home was built in 1902, has 11 rooms total, a cool spiral staircase that services all three floors, three full bathrooms and two half baths, and beautiful wood everywhere. There is some questionable wallpaper in a few of the rooms that covers both the walls and the ceilings, but it was purchased in the '70s so we guess Yogi gets a pass.
The real-estate agent that listed the home for sale tells NY Daily News that there will be no open houses (probably to keep the hoards of Yankees fans away) but you can check it out by making an appointment.
