If you were quick enough, you might have purchased a few shares of the autographed game-worn jersey offered on Rally Rd recently. The offering sold out within minutes, and I was not able to land my own piece of history. 267 other investors and collectors did manage to offer $28.50 per share, marking the current value of the jersey at $75,000.
Rally Rd is one of the best fractional ownership concepts out there today. After a few years of careful research and design by the co-founders Chris Bruno, Rob Petrozzo, and Max Niederste-Ostholt, Rally Rd is off and running. Actually, it’s been offering collector cars for more than a year and has recently expanded their offerings.
The company started it’s the entry into sports cards by offering a 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card. The Mantle card sold out in minutes, confirming the enormous interest by collectors for the highest quality assets in a given category. The game-worn Mays jersey compliments the Mantle card perfectly as the first two offerings in the sports memorabilia category.

Recent interviews from the co-founders indicate they have no plans to slow the pace of new and exciting offerings. Watches, wine, and whiskey are just a few categories the company has coming soon.
Backed by Rev Ventures, Social Leverage, and a few other investors, Rally Rd has serious backing and big plans. Over 30 employees staff the New York City headquarters where they’ve also opened a retail store and showroom open to the public.
