A signed baseball card featuring a very young Zuckerberg could fetch school camp counsellor Allie Tarantino a tidy sum when it goes to auction.
How much is Zuckerberg worth? Card collector could find out
When camp counsellor Allie Tarantino was flipping through a magazine years ago, he came upon a familiar name: Mark Zuckerberg. He rifled through boxes of memorabilia in his basement, running his fingers over old photos, newspapers and bus maps before finding a baseball card featuring a very young Zuckerberg grinning in a red jersey and gripping a bat.
Three decades later, Tarantino is hoping a signed baseball card featuring one of the richest men in the world will bring a fortune when it is put up for auction next month.
“It’s like my version of a midlife crisis. I’m 50 years old – what am I going to do with this?” Tarantino joked.
As told by Tarantino – who still works summers at Elmwood Day Camp in Westchester, New York – Zuckerberg, then age eight or nine, offered the card he’d had printed as a parting gift at the end of camp 30 years ago.
