Baltimore Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. couldn’t find a buyer for his 25-acre Tufton Farms estate in Reisterstown, Maryland, at its initial price of $12.5 million, or later at $9.75 million, and now he is selling it at a no-minimum, no-reserve auction May 12 with open houses starting Saturday.
Ripken tried to sell the estate for $12.5 million in April 2016 shortly after his divorce from Kelly. The price was slashed in April 2017 to $9.75 million but no buyers jumped at the opportunity. DeCaro Auctions International is handling the auction. The estate sits on 25 acres of land about 30 minutes north of Baltimore.
