How many of you out there happen to be die-hard fans of the New York Yankees? Better yet, how many of you out there love the Yankees enough to change your phone number to spell out “Go Yanks?”

Well, it looks like this may be the perfect opportunity for you–that is assuming you have an extra $5,000 you’re willing to spend on obtaining the number.

That’s right, one man has posted an ad in which a fan can buy the rights to his cell phone number that spells out “Go Yanks.” Obviously, only a die-hard Yankee fan would be dumb enough to make a purchase like this, but as sad as it sounds–it also wouldn’t be a surprise if the seller eventually found a buyer for the rights to this number.

We’ve seen fans attempt to sell crazy items over the years, but this may take the cake over anything else as this is simply just a cell phone number and only happens to be meaningful if you happen to be a Yankees fan. Not to mention most people in this world are satisfied enough to just have a simple cell phone number to use and could care less what the spelling of their number is.

Keep an eye on this ad as it will be interesting to see whether or not a Yankees fan gives in and makes the purchase. Of course, if you’re willing to spend this type of money for a simple cell phone number just for the significance of spelling out “Go Yanks”–you may want to consider signing up for a few courses on proper investments.
