Baseball Collectors Take Note: Joe DiMaggio's Childhood Home Is For Sale, And It Could Be Yours


It’s not everyday you have the chance to own “Joe DiMaggio’s childhood home in North Beach“, but today is your day.

Not listed on the MLS, and not listed at a “fair market price”, you can own a piece of Major League Baseball Legend, and by default a piece of Marilyn Monroe history, but you’re going to have to pay.
Knowing where this home is (on Taylor in North Beach), and what it’s made of (updated unit upstairs, empty unit down, with parking), one would peg a price around $1.2-$1.4M. But this is Joe DiMaggio’s childhood home we’re talking about! You’re not buying a comparable market property, you’re buying a collector’s item. You can live in it if you like, or hold it like any prized piece of art. Asking price is $2,000,000, so if you’re a baseball nut, or avid collector who’d normally throw down that kind of cash on a baseball card, one up your competition and buy the whole darn house where legend was raised.

For the sake of privacy, we aren’t posting pictures of the actual property [permission granted, see below], but facts have been checked and sources verified…Joe DiMaggio’s childhood home could be yours, if the price is right.
Hint: It’s somewhere around here:


[Editor’s Note: We have recently uncovered some discrepancies on exact address…we are told 2026-2028 Taylor is correct, but internet sources peg it at 2047 Taylor, so keep that in mind.]

    The DiMaggio family lived at 2047 Taylor between Filbert and Greenwich at the corner of the little alley Valparaiso.
