LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Fandom can be displayed in many ways.
It’s one thing to own all of your favorite star’s movies or be able to recite all of their famous film quotes - but how about buying their house?
For Jack Nicholson fans, if you’ve got $450,000 lying around, you can now score yourself a true piece of memorabilia.
Jack’s childhood home in Neptune, New Jersey, is up for bid on eBay. The starting bid is listed at $449,000.
The 2,500-square foot home, located at 1410 Sixth Avenue, was built in 1926, has 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It was posted for auction by RE/Max of New Jersey.
“According to the locals, Jack would wait eagerly every Saturday morning on the front steps for the first neighbor headed to the local movie theater and the afternoon matinee,” the posting claims. “Aside from the obvious history connection, it is a charming and stately home.”
eBay spokesperson Catherine England said the online marketplace was unable to verify the validity of the residence.
“Due diligence is left strictly to both eBay buyers and sellers,” England told Access Hollywood. “But if the sole reason someone is interested in buying this is because of the connection to Jack Nicholson, they should definitely ask the seller to provide documentation.”
England said this also wasn’t the first celebrity home to go up for bid on eBay. One of Elvis Presley’s previous homes was also once posted on the site.
But does Jack even know his supposed childhood home is up for bid?
“If Jack Nicholson’s representative sees it and it’s not something Jack wants to lend his name to help it sell, he can ask us to remove it,” England added.
As of Friday, there were zero bids. The auction ends November 18.
