Babe Ruth's House, 'Home Plate Farm,' Can Be All Yours For $1.3 Million (PHOTOS)

If you're into baseball memorabilia, have we got the ultimate collectible for you. That is, if you have $1.3 million to spare. For this newly discounted price, you can buy the Sultan of Swat, Babe Ruth's house in Sudbury, Massachusetts.

Ruth owned "Home Plate Farm," this pristine clapboard farmhouse, for five years starting in 1922 after he was traded from the Red Sox to the Yankees, according to Zillow. It's speculated that he may have purchased the working farm to lose weight and to appease his wife Helen, who wasn't happy with his partying ways in New York City.

The five-bedroom, three and a half-bathroom, 5,200-square-foot home has been restored and is complete with a gourmet kitchen with cherry wood cabinets, fireplaces and a 5,000-square-foot barn with a one-bedroom apartment. But Realtor.com says that the original floors throughout the home still have burn marks from the Babe’s cigar ashes.
