Let's see...I've got $46 dollars on me, and ...

If this sells, Shoeless Joe can afford to buy a pair of cleats. Or two.

‘Field of Dreams’ for sale in Iowa at $5.4 million.
DYERSVILLE, Iowa — Iowa’s world-famous “Field of Dreams” is for sale. The asking price of $5.4 million on the 193-acre tract near Dyersville is well over the $900,000 to $1 million the land would bring at current values in Dubuque and Delaware counties. In part, that’s because an estimated 65,000 people visit the field every year. The sale will include the baseball diamond and farmhouse used in the 1989 movie, several farm buildings and two souvenir stands. The baseball field was built in the summer of 1988 by Universal Studios. The popularity of the movie made it a tourist draw. The Des Moines Register.
