Mark Zuckerberg is best known for co-founding the social media platform Facebook. He is a well-educated businessman who is one of the world’s most powerful figures. However, Zuckerberg played baseball as a child and he even had a card made.
Zuckerberg began playing baseball when he was eight years old, in 1992. He chose to auction off a signed baseball card of himself. The card will officially be sold by ComicConnect.com in September.
Allie Tarantino worked as a camp counselor at Zuckerberg’s school and carried the card for many years. Tarantino had a big baseball card collection, and Zuckerberg’s overzealous demeanor was shown. Apparently, he approached her with the desire of his baseball card being signed. Something in which she would do.
Tarantino used the card to brag about it to his friends and family. They eventually sold the card to help pay for their children’s college expenses.
Mark Zuckerberg spent his childhood in Westchester County, New York. In 2005, the 38-year-old dropped out of Harvard to focus solely on his Facebook empire. His fearless goals make him valorous and untouchable, and he has a net worth of 57.8 billion.
Obviously, a piece of history like this doesn’t come around very often. Only time will tell how much someone is willing to lay down to own this relic from the Facebook/Meta founder’s life.
